Coping with COVID-19: Daily Mental Health Tip: Movement, Turning Points and Resources

Things are happening.  There is motion, process and (hopefully) progress… 

As a friend of mine in Brooklyn described…..”you know it’s different when, whether you are intending to go to a protest that day or not and you are walking the streets, you are very likely to be swept up in a swell of people heading to that day’s meeting point.”

With all this motion and a potential turning point for our country, I put together a few resources that I have been digesting for you to check out.

Please share any resources that you are finding helpful with me as well.  

1. A remarkable interview with Ibram X. Kendi (author of How to Be An Antiracist) on Brene Brown’s podcast, Unlocking Us:

2. “Mixed-race people, who make up nearly a quarter of Hawaii’s population of 1.4 million, serve as a kind of jamming mechanism for people’s race radar” 
(thank you to Downing, who passed this along)
This remarkable sentence is found in this fascinating article:

3. Uncomfortable Conversations With a Black Man – Emmanuel Acho 

4. An article from Shannon O’Shea: Creating a New Social Contract for a Healthy, Just and Sustainable World 

Sincerely,
Ben
