Caring in a World That Doesn’t Care

We're living through a global pandemic, civil unrest, and threats to our democracy. It's necessary for young people to step up in advocating for a better future. But in doing so, we often don’t realize the stress and anxiety that can take a toll on our bodies. How can you take better care of yourself? Especially when it feels like people may not be understanding? Or that self-care is expensive and inaccessible? In this episode, #FOTV hosts Amy and Kaitlyn speak with two professors about the history and relevance of radical self-care. Dr. Donna Nicol is an associate professor and chair of the Africana Studies Department at Cal State Dominguez Hills. Dr. Jennifer A. Yee is a Professor of Asian American Studies at California State University, Fullerton (CSUF). What is radical about radical self-care and how is it different from good old consumerism? #FOTV also brings in Jess Ayden Li, an activist & nonprofit consultant for how she helps organizations implement self-care cultures. Meditation music credit to BGM President.Support the show (https://www.buymeacoffee.com/freshoffthevote)
