The work to end gender-based violence exacts a high cost on our bodies, our minds, and our spirits. Too often, our health as advocates and activists is secondary to our social change advocacy and support of survivors. During this time of the pandemic, the toll on advocates seems higher than ever. Is it possible that ignoring our own well-being can further the very oppression and misogyny that we are trying to end? Might ignoring our own well-being limit our ability to care for others? How can we sustain ourselves during this time of uncertainty to maintain a life of balance? To transform society, we must transform ourselves to embody resilience instead of despair, health instead of burnout, nourishment instead of overwork and overload. This webinar will frame wellness as a necessary extension of social change advocacy. We will examine the obstacles to addressing our self-care, especially in the face of the current health crisis, and explore concrete solutions.
