WELLNESS ZONE

Keep in mind that research confirms both the deleterious effects of discrimination on people of color and the benefits of sustained self-care. Take time to get a massage, try healthy snacks, and participate in important screenings. Share wellness practices that work for you. Then take home related resources and inspiration to reinforce selfcare. In the words of poet and civil rights activist Audre Lorde, it is “not self-indulgence, it is self-preservation, and that is an act of political warfare.”
