Live at 3pm on December 6th.
GAIN Power is hosting Reggie Hubbard to discuss the importance of rest and recovery to the life of an activist and campaign staffer.
Political practitioners are frequently overworked and neglect taking care of themselves during campaigns – and after like now. At GAIN Power – we want to center including programs that not only permit Democratic and Progressive professionals to take time for meditation, yoga, and other physical exercises and practices – but prioritize it as part of professional development. This session is an integral part of this commitment. We are honored to be joined by Reggie Hubbard – who we think is the most impactful Democracy Yogi in our progressive movement. We’ll discuss how and why practicing some form of self-care is essential for movement leaders, and Reggie will also lead a meditative practice.
