Join EPIP LA for an interactive workshop to explore "Healing Justice," as coined by Cara Page, and learn why it matters to the sustainability of social justice work. This workshop will focus on incorporating wellness as a direct correlation with social justice and will include a short, accessible yoga practice that can be done at your desk. No previous yoga experience is necessary. This workshop will be led by Alicia ‘ayo’ Ohs, an artist, anti-racist facilitator, yoga teacher, and the founder of Anti-Oppression Yoga based in Brooklyn, NY, Lenapehoking. A long time organizer, ayo has also been teaching yoga for 16 years and is dedicated to understanding and unpacking how inequity and racism inundate our lives and bodies.
EPIP LA's New Member Meeting welcomes all EPIP members whether you just joined, are interested in joining, or are a longtime member and just want to learn more about EPIP LA. We'll share information about our mission, vision and goals as well as build community with one another.
We’re over a year into quarantine since the pandemic launched us into a shutdown. No doubt this is grating on our time, energy, and mental health. We find ourselves steeped in a culture of workism that has now taken up residence in our homes 24/7. We know that a face mask and breathing exercises don’t change going back to the same old grind. So, what can we do? Our own Angela Sanchez has some ideas.
This session will provide practical tips and strategies that EPIPers can start using to get some of our own health and mental wellbeing back under our control. Attendees will learn how to:
• Be jealous with your time.
• Be protective of your boundaries.
• Utilize affirmative and transparent language.
• Manage accountability strategies to grow these skills into habits.

Join EPIP LA for a conversation with Kaci Patterson, Founder and President of Social Good Solutions, Senior Director of the Los Angeles Partnership for Early Childhood Investment, Co-Founder and Chair of Building Leaders and Cultivating Change, and Founder and Chief Architect of the Black Equity Collective. Kaci will join us to reflect on the year from May 25, 2020 to the present; how philanthropy has changed (and remained the same); and the call upon the next generation of funders who are at the beginning stages of their philanthropic journeys.
