To commemorate the end of the Texas Legislative session we want to honor and celebrate Black RJ advocates with Sonya Renee Taylor. Sonya Renee Taylor uses Radical Self- Care as a model for our healing and liberation.
Sonya Renee Taylor is an author, poet, spoken word artist, speaker, a humanitarian and social justice activist, educator, and founder of The Body is Not An Apology movement, an international movement, and organization committed to radical self-love and body empowerment as the foundational tool for social justice and global transformation. Sonya’s work as an award-winning Performance Poet, activist, and transformational leader continues to have global reach. Sonya is a former national and international poetry slam champion, author, educator and activist who has mesmerized audiences across the US, New Zealand, Australia, Germany, England, Scotland, Sweden, Canada and the Netherlands as well as in prisons, mental health treatment facilities, homeless shelters, universities, festivals and public schools across the globe.
In order to continue this work, we have to prioritize self-preservation and make time to reflect and re-charge so we can keep fighting for our communities. Join us as we change the narrative of self-care through different lenses of self-expression.
