Let’s talk about our collective experience. Cultural trauma is what happens when we all see something that could have been us, our brother, father, son, mother, sister... basically a horrific event that changes how we think, view, and move about the world. .
👉🏾Like when you’re casually scrolling social media and you see a video of a black man being murdered in plain view, by law enforcement... for the fifty-eleventh time. .
👉🏾This has an indelible effect on our psyche.
👉🏾I know we’re weary. Exhausted. Hurting. Angry. Confused. And just plain sick of it. .
👉🏾Take care of yourself. Tap in when you can and tap out when you need to. Give yourself permission to take some respite from all the gory details. .
👉🏾And when you’re ready to tap in, make sure you link up with an organization that is offering a strategic plan for change! Whether you are advocating by writing policy or on the ground marching as an activist, your contribution is valid and necessary!!
👉🏾Don’t forget, we’re STILL in this together ♥️
