Self Care Saturday

This is a past event.

Join Social Justice Advocacy Council as we celebrate International Women's Day with a Self Care Saturday! Licensed cognitive-behavioral therapist, Fanicy Sears will lead us in a sound bath with guided meditation and a session of restorative yoga centering and affirming women and women's experiences.

Since we gathered to celebrate International Women's Day in 2020, our worlds have been flipped upside down. From the pandemic, to the rise in social unrest, to the ever-changing impacts of social distancing and how we do things, we have all been impacted by the stressors of life -- especially women. From the United Nations:

  • A profound shock to our societies and economies, the COVID-19 pandemic underscores society’s reliance on women both on the front line and at home, while simultaneously exposing structural inequalities across every sphere, from health to the economy, security to social protection. In times of crisis, when resources are strained and institutional capacity is limited, women and girls face disproportionate impacts with far reaching consequences that are only further amplified in contexts of fragility, conflict, and emergencies.

This space is for ALL women of ALL identities and their allies. Women will be centered in the space, but everyone is welcome to participate! Check out our Instagram for ways to win a self care kit.
