Webinar - Healthy Activism and Long-Term Well-Being: What does it take?
The 4th in a series of webinars, takes a long-term look at the Undocumented Stress Cycle and what long-term well-being might mean for young people impacted by undocumented status. Dr. Ellis considers the role of activism in the lives of undocumented young persons, as undocumented activists are often treated as models of youth empowerment and resilience. Yet, while activism serves as a valuable means for helping young people develop positive identities, it also poses social risks and personal challenges that frequently go unacknowledged both by professionals and activists themselves.
