Community organizing and group leadership is hard work. You’re at your best when you’re taking time to care for yourself. Please don’t forget to put on your own oxygen mask first!

Tap into the community. Ask specific individuals for help or suggestions on who else to ask.

Cristela Garcia-Spitz

Don’t be afraid to say when you’ve taken on too much, and to ask for help. Some people won’t step up until asked directly, and it doesn’t help anyone if you go under.

Sending Out an SOS

Please contact Team DLF directly and confidentially if you are ever feeling over-stretched. We’ll find ways to continue your good work and give you a break! After all, it takes a #DLFvillage.

Caring for myself is not self-indulgence, it is self-preservation and that is an act of political warfare.

Audre Lorde
