Women's Rights and the right to a safe working environment is very much at the forefront of WOW Chaplaincy's work. Today we share with an example of how important Self Care is for Advocates and Activists.

Advocates are helping professionals who work for a cause bigger than themselves. They come from all kinds of backgrounds and include a wide range of professions. This includes those who work in social services, victim services, healthcare, criminal justice, emergency response, mental health, public health, community organizing, civil rights, education, journalism, and ANY profession dedicated to making the world a safer, healthier, and more equitable place.
 
Does this sound like you? Then damn right, you’re an advocate! Welcome aboard.

Let's meet the Founder of Self Care for Advocates, Trace Fleming-Trice.
