The fight against systemic racism and violence puts our bodies and communities through unimaginable strain. For this week of #FreedomSummer, Freedom Inc. is taking time to invest in health and wellness while prioritizing our safety during the pandemic. Health is complicated. When people talk about health, they could mean the kinds of food we eat, our physical wellness, the quality of our environment and living spaces, our access to medical care, the state of our emotions, or protection against disease. For queer and BIPOC communities, health is a complicated balance of all of these and more.
Freedom Inc.’s dedication to community investment is also a dedication to improving our health in any way we can. Our experiences are not defined by trauma, and our minds and bodies always deserve kindness. We should make room for joy and our well-being so that we have the energy to continue to fight for justice in our communities. Take time today to find joy for yourself and your family while the summer lasts!
We’ve been bringing you health day for an incredible 19 years, and we don’t plan on letting a pandemic stop us now! We’ll be giving you healthful tips, education, and reminders every day this week to get you primed for our first VIRTUAL Freedom Inc. Health Day on Saturday, August 22nd! Join us across our socials for daily info about health disparities in our communities and ways to cultivate health and well-being in anticipation of this event.
