Hush Harbors: Self-Care for Women of Color

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Self-care and resiliency have been core concerns of many current justice movements including Black Lives Matter. Yet we still lose faith leaders and activists to burnout and suicide. We must rethink the idea of self-care as a solitary endeavor and instead think of it as a communal effort. The Hush Harbors Initiative was born out of a desire to make healing, resilience, and self-care in community central to social justice work. We focus on healing for black women in social justice and faith work. However other women of color are also welcome to come and re-envision self-care and healing.
