WEBINAR: Lorde, Help Us: Understanding Audre Lorde’s Teachings Through
a Lens of Self-care, Self-love, and Self-determination.
Host: Women's Museum of California
Date and Time: Wed, February 24, 2021 @ 6:00 PM – 7:00 PM PT
Activist, feminist, and writer, Audre Lorde, was a self-described "Black, lesbian, mother, warrior, poet," who dedicated both her life and her creative talent to confronting and addressing injustices of racism, sexism, classism, capitalism, ableism, ageism,
and anti-LGBTQ+, as well as exploring black feminism and intersectionality, and other
social movements (Wiki).
Join us in understanding Audre Lorde’s teachings through a lens of self-care, self-love, and self-determination. During this interactive presentation, attendees will identify ways to prioritize wellness, examine intersectional identities of womanhood, and explore resources for a sustained self-care practice.
Everyone is welcome to attend.
Participants will identify the triggers that lead to burn out, gain practical tips for managing stress and understand self-care principles that support well-being.
Participants will have a greater understanding of intersectionality and the cross-section of race and gender issues. Participants will connect how womxn with intersecting identities (sexual identity, race, gender, ability status, socioeconomic status, etc.) experience additional layers of bias, racism, and discrimination.
Participants will understand how allies shift power dynamics in dismantling systems that don’t work for everyone and creating systems that do.
