Rest for Resistance
Rest for Resistance strives to uplift marginalized communities, those who rarely get access to adequate health care or social support. This includes Black, Indigenous, Latinx, Pacific Islander, Asian, Middle Eastern, and multiracial persons.
We also seek to create healing space for LGBTQIA+ individuals, namely trans & queer people of color, as well as other stigmatized groups such as sex workers, immigrants, persons with physical and/or mental disabilities, and those living at the intersections of all of the above.
Our team of editors, seven trans people of color, seek to honor each contributor's vision and individual perspective in order to create space for raw experiences that are too often silenced. Interested in contributing? Feel free to reach out with writing and art portfolios.
QTPoC Mental Health
Founded in March 2015, QTPoC Mental Health is a grassroots trans-led org that creates online and offline spaces for trans & queer people of color to practice being our whole selves. Join our Facebook group, QTPoC Healing Space, and meet us in person at QTPoC Meditation in Brooklyn.
This represents a sliver of what Rest for Resistance can accomplish. We're continuing to build the site to have a directory of intersectional mental health resources, as well as information about meditation (as it exists in countless forms) as an act of resistance against oppression.
