SistaCare Kick-Off (Session II)
Learn about this self-care group for Black/Africana women!
Wednesday, September 16, 2020 · Noon - 1 PM
“Caring for myself is not self-indulgence, it is self-preservation, and that is an act of political warfare.”
The opening quote, penned by writer Audre Lorde in 1988, illuminates the necessity of Black women to intentionally cultivate, grow, and maintain practices of self-care as both a personal and political act. In doing so, we directly challenge systems of oppression that seek to dehumanize and devalue Black Women.
Join us to learn more about SistaCare, a self-care and community-building group open to all undergraduate and graduate Black/Africana women (e.g. trans, cis) and femmes, regardless of their gender expression.*
Participants will meet for monthly, 75-minute sessions that focus on self-care, collective care, and community-building practices.
Three sessions are available but you only need to attend one of them! Click HERE for the session available September 15 at 10am or HERE for the session on September 17 at 4pm.
*Please note that this is a closed group and is only open to the named population. This is subject to change according to attendees and potential future event opportunities and initiatives.
