Self-Care as Social Justice for Students of Color

The late, great Audre Lorde said, “caring for myself is not self-indulgence, it is self-preservation…”
 
College is hard enough on its own. Adding micro-aggressions and invalidating experiences into the mix can make life miserable. Join us each week for an hour of reflection and resistance. Connect with like-minded peers as we discuss how to navigate challenging campus, community, national, and global cultures; & how we can take care of our physical, mental, and emotional selves when our environment is disaffirming.
