TAKE ACTION. STAND UP.
TIPS FOR SELF CARE
UNPLUG. RESET. RESIST NORMALIZATION.
"We have to stay outraged for the next four years and resist the powerful urge to adapt to the new normal. But when it gets to be too much, it’s ok to unplug for a bit." From The Coffeelicious
FOCUS ON YOUR OWN TYPE OF ACTIVISM.
"Try a few different things and pay attention to which forms of activism you believe are effective, and which of the possibly effective things energize and nourish you, as those will be sustainable." From Radical self-care for activists in the time of Trump
"What are specific actions you take that relax you? We have to concretize self-care into specific actions and plan them into our schedule so that they are integrated into our daily lives." From Dealing with Activist Burn-Out and Self-Care
IDENTIFY AND ACTIVELY PRACTICE THE SELF CARE THAT WORKS FOR YOU.
It was an honor for WIN.NYC to be an official partner of the Women's March on Washington and to march with all of our fantastic #WINwomen in both D.C. and NYC. But that was just the beginning. We're continuing to organize and fight back - and we need your help!
Here's how to take action with WIN.NYC (and see below for some of our favorite action-based resources):
This takes a village. If you're not already a WIN.NYC member, join up with over 3,000 of your fellow NYC feminists today, then follow us on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter.
Take care of yourself.
Take a read of the self care tips to the right and make time for you. Our first suggestion? Connect with your fellow #WINwomen at any number of events we have coming up.
