What might the radical new world look like without us in it? A world without social justice warriors is not an option. As much as we work to value and preserve the lives and rights of others, it’s time we explore another strategy of defense in our organized resistance: self-preservation. In this session, participants from all backgrounds and experiences are invited to engage NY Writers Coalition’s community of writers and activists in a panel discussion of radical self-care. Here, we’ll share contemplative writing prompts and tap into centering exercises – physically, emotionally, spiritually – to aid and sustain us on our path to a radical new world. Join us as we locate ourselves, our stories, and our futures.
