The Trump Administration moves so fast, activists are already experiencing burn-out. We’ve never had to do so much high stakes activism, on so many fronts, in so little time.
We know we have tackle this challenge one step at a time, and the steps won’t get any easier, which is why we want to make sure that we’re taking good care of ourselves and each other along the way.
TAKE ACTION. TAKE CARE. IS AN ONLINE RESOURCE FOR POLITICAL ACTIONS, SOCIAL JUSTICE INFO, AND SELF-CARE INSPIRATION, PROVIDING INTERSECTIONAL SUPPORT FOR THE RESISTANCE.
BECAUSE THE PERSONAL IS POLITICAL.
By providing people with smaller, more personal action items, we seek to help people focus their political action on both long-term and immediately achievable goals.
In linking action with self care, we encourage people to take care of themselves in order to reduce burnout and keep our activist friends going for the long haul.
Because you can’t keep kicking ass if you’re too tired to tie your shoes.
