Soft Bright Gradient World Health Day In

Racism is a public health threat!

Recently, the CDC declared racism as a public health threat. Strikingly, it took 400+ years to deem racism as a health threat. Racism has always been a health threat since its inception, so it is interesting that the CDC just declared it as a threat. Racism is trauma. And anti-Blackness is pervasive.

With the continuous policing of Black people and our livelihoods, please do some self-care.

 

Self-care tips:

  • Laugh at memes

  • Do some yoga

  • Make some turmeric tea

  • Get off social media

  • Watch a funny show

  • Prioritize your sleep

  • Be kind to yourself
