Boston Care Workers present:
Organizing Care: An injury to one is an injury to all.
A workshop series focusing on the many ways that care and caregiving have been co-opted and professionalized away from our communities. In the pursuit of health and solidarity - we will build together, through dialogue and activies, an understanding of the ways to fight back against the exploitation of our health, wellness, and capacity for care.
Carework as a strategy for organizing and solidarity building.
Community and social resource mapping
Creating and maintaining a personal health record
Communication and advocacy skills within a "health care" context
Other topics relevant to participants' interests and needs
Engage in dialogue to explore topics related to the intersection of health, care, and organizing.
Identify the many systems undermining the creation of cultures of care and health within our communities.
Learn about the institutions of health care dominating the western model.
Engage and document our personal health stories to reinforce ownership and self advocacy.
Establish the foundation for mapping health care resources within our own communities.
Recognize and deepen our understanding of classism, ableism, ageism and racism as they impact our relationship to care giving.
All are welcome! This is the first time we are offering this workshop and look forward to feedback and further offerings in the future based on this initial series.
Unions Heal what Bosses Steal. Solidarity to all Care Workers!
