This interactive workshop will lead participants in a discussion exploring concepts of self-care, community-care, and healing justice as practiced by those who value social justice. The workshop will use a popular education framework to explore questions such as: How do we take care of ourselves and take care of each other while doing social justice work? How do we prevent and transform burnout, thus cultivating sustainability in our healing and justice-seeking practices? How do we critique our own communities and organizations and tackle internal challenges without creating additional harm? How do we find and create spaces where we feel safe enough to fall apart, and still trust we will have collective space available when we bounce back again? The workshop is designed for newcomers to Healing Justice work as well as for people who want to continue and deepen their analysis and toolbox.
