Self-Care is an Act of Resistance

Self-care is an act of resistance and it is more important now than ever. It is essential to our well-being as we continue doing the hard work of advocating for and supporting Black communities.



In March 2019, a group of Black community leaders gathered and reflected upon their experiences and challenges with mental and emotional well-being, as well as those of others who looked like them. Initial brainstorming focused on the well-being of Black community ambassadors. These individuals in both paid and volunteer roles live out a commitment to a better humanity and a better-lived experience for the Black community. Inspired to fill a void, the Black Community Ambassador Support Program (BCASP) was designed to offer safe, supportive spaces for Black helpers to connect, step back from giving, and receive.

The difficult reality awaiting the Black community in 2020 created new urgency in the development of BCASP, and required a reimagining of offerings in a virtual space. In this reimagined online experience, the primary focus became facilitating culturally-responsive services, workshops, and safe spaces for Black helpers who were on the front lines of both the COVID-19 response and the social justice movement.  As outlined in a Columbus Dispatch article about BCASP, programming initially intended to serve those in Franklin County attracted people all over the world, including Canada, the UK, and beyond.
