Conversation Details

Conversation type: 

Human rights work is challenging. Activists are often exposed to distressing situations directly and indirectly. We believe that we must first and foremost take care of ourselves - because we are our most valuable resource. 

This Twitter chat explores why self care is important for activists doing human rights work, barriers that exist to the right to rest and leisure, and what individuals and organizations can do to counter fatigue, burnout, and secondary trauma in activism.

Join the conversation! This dialogue is a space for anyone to share resources, approaches, and ideas for how to address these risks. If you work in the field of human rights, join this dialogue on Balancing Human Rights Activism and Self Care.
