Storrs Campus
Women's Center Program Room

This one-day retreat from the Women's Center and Community Outreach will give you the tools you need for sustainable activism. The retreat is open to people with all levels of experience, from people with a new interest in activism to those already working in activist circles. Sign up for one or more of the three featured workshops:

Self Care Within Activist Practices From 10:00 - 11:45, join us for a workshop on self-care in activism. How do we take care of ourselves while advocating for change? How do we tend to our own health and emotions? We'll sit down and talk about strategies for keeping yourself healthy and avoiding burnout.

Working Lunch: Activism 101 From 12:00 - 1:45, join us for a working lunch while learning the basics of how to navigate networks of change. Food and beverages will be provided.

Tools for Activism From 2:00 - 3:45, join us for a workshop on facilitating dialogue and creating connections with people across differences. We'll learning communication techniques and how to make change within different spheres - institutional, community, and interpersonal.
