  • Maintaining Mental Wellness as an Activist

    April 21, 2019  6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
    Irvine Ranch Water District - Community Meeting Room, 15500 Sand Canyon Ave, Irvine, CA 92618, USA

    It is impossible for a person to be outraged continuously for long periods of time, but outrage is the natural response to ongoing injustices and atrocities. The results can be considered a form of compassion fatigue, a literal depletion of the human capacity for a normal response.

    How do we avoid burnout and apathy? How do we stay engaged without wearing ourselves out?

    We will discuss self-care as a form of activism. Meet with us in the Irvine Ranch Water District Community Room to discuss this issue. We will have some art materials, pens, and paper available for your use. This is a family-friendly event, although we may discuss issues that are sensitive, such as harassment, assault, racism, homophobia, etc. The meeting will be held inside at a privately reserved space with seating available. Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns about the accessibility of the space.

    This event is open to new and existing members, and to all who are interested in DSA and its mission to create a community that works for all of us.

    We will be there between 6:30pm and 8:30pm. Parking is available on site.
