Many of us are good at developing a plan for an action. Well, what is your post-action plan?

Come meditate and share ideas with your community on a good post action plan and ways that we can seek support when needed at Ohio Voice’s June “Inhale/Exhale.” “Inhale/Exhale” is a space for restorative healing for activists and organizers in the progressive and left ecosystem. We would love for you to honor your body, mind, and work by joining us for a moment of rest and healing.
