Seeking Input From Philly-Area Organizers on Self-Care Strategies

Self-care, healing, and personal development are essential to the strength of our movements, but they are often sidelined as low priorities.

As the hub for movements for change in the Philadelphia region, Bread & Roses is gathering information about how local organizers take care of themselves and prevent burnout and how we might better support individual people in movements. We are now offering organizers two ways to provide their input: by filling out a survey or attending a focus group.

The five-minute survey on personal development and self-care is designed to give Bread & Roses a better sense of the knowledge base, assets, and needs of the organizing community and its access to personal development and self-care resources.

Organizers can also attend a two-hour focus group in Center City, led by Erica Atwood of First Degree Consulting. Participants will receive food and a Visa gift card. Bread & Roses offers two dates to choose from:

      Monday, July 8, 5:30 to 7:30 pm
      Thursday, July 11, 5:30 to 7:30 pm

We ask those interested to RSVP by text to 215.688.5073 or email to info@firstdegreellc.com
