Purpose: The purpose of Ferguson Self Care is to provide activists with resources to take care of their physical, mental, and emotional health, in an effort to sustain them.
Short term goals: To make self-care readily available within the direct actions. This will be done by leading short stretches, providing self care packets that will include words of affirmation, snacks, lavender essential oils, water, headphones to mentally checkout of the action and listen to music.
Long term goal: To implement monthly events centered on the various methods of the healing work. Each event will always include group counseling, one on one session, food, and free massages. However, the monthly theme and focused activity of the event will change.
