In the spirit of collective care, NEC is taking the week of July 27th off to recognize the impact that the pandemic and uprisings have had on our staff. NEC staff will not be responding to communications or posting to social media for this week. Thank you for your patience while we pause to prioritize rest and reflection over productivity in this moment.
Our member organizations truly make our network real and we’re constantly inspired by them; you can learn more about the importance of collective rest from NEC member organization, the Sustainable Economies Law Center. As the SELC put it beautifully:
“We follow the lead of queer, feminist, and activist leaders who brought the idea of self-care into our movement spaces; a self-care that is not about commodities sold to us so that we accept the economic, environmental, and social conditions we are born into, but one that leads us closer to liberating ourselves from the systems of oppression that each of us have internalized in different ways. We hope that you can find ways to do the same.”
Wishing you all a moment of rest and care wherever you may be <3
The NEC Staff
