Even under the best circumstances, legal aid and pro bono work can be incredibly stressful, challenging and emotionally taxing, and may lead to secondary trauma. Wellness is also critical for those working on social justice issues as well as understanding the impact of stress and trauma caused by the impact of systematic racism in our work every day. Join us for a fun, interactive, and accessible well-being check-in and education.
