MDAEYC hosted a webinar on Mindful Activism on May 26, with more than 400 education professionals attending. Education and mental health expert Mawule A. Sevon gave an insightful presentation to support educators in building healthy practices of mindfulness so that they can continue to help others.
Social Justice oriented educators have been instrumental in overcoming barriers to many of the racial injustices facing children in America today. While these educators are fighting for the human rights of their students and themselves, it is possible to get burned out and tired due to the size of the problem. The work of socially conscious inside or out of the classroom requires mindful activism.
Mawule offered advice for educators hoping to create social change, starting with their students and leading into the world. MDAEYC is grateful to Mawule for sharing her expertise with our early educator community.
Here is the video recording of the webinar session.
