Virtual Book Reading & Conversation Feat. Author Naomi Ortiz & facilitated by William Copeland

Self-Care for Social Justice in the Time of COVID How are these times impacting your self-care? Even in the best of situations, self-care can sometimes feel like another “to do.” In this moment, many of us are being asked to respond to support our communities, friends and family, as well as ourselves. How do we adjust expectations of ourselves? It’s easy to have our routines, relationships, and spiritual practices rattled during this intense societal shift. Is it possible to listen to and learn from the wisdom of our collective present? How do we hold grace for ourselves? Join us as we speak with Naomi Ortiz, author of Sustaining Spirit: Self-Care for Social Justice, to explore the various ways to practice self-care and the challenges posed by COVID, that are grounded in disability justice, racial justice, and grown from the US/Mexico borderlands.

Date: May 9th 2020 Time: 11am PT/2pm ET Length: 75 minutes, including a facilitated portion by Will Copeland and small group break-out sharing time.

Disability access: Sign-interpreter and captions provided. Accommodation request in RSVP.  This event is co-sponsored by Detroit Disability Power and Allies for Change
