Lunchtime Live – Dealing with the pain of being an activist

May 18 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Hey everyone! Every quarter, Animal Justice Academy Director Kimberly Carroll does a workshop to help animal advocates with a point of struggle. Here’s the one for this quarter as part of our AJA Lunchtime Live this THURSDAY!

Whether it’s anger at the industries that exploit animals, the horror of seeing all the graphic images, the hopelessness of facing impossible odds, or overwhelm from the million and one things you think you should be doing… the business of animal advocacy is full of emotional landmines.

On top of that, you were probably attracted to protecting animals because you’re a sensitive, big-hearted soul, so this kind of pain hits you even more than the average person.

That’s why Kimberly’s putting on her coach for changemakers hat and teaching you some ways to better navigate the heaviness of doing animal protection work.

We’ll explore:
– avoiding burnout by having routines for processing pain
– how not to get traumatized by graphic imagery
– cathartic tools every activist should have
– the boundaries you need to put into place
