A Time to Pause, Reflect, and Process

A Time to Pause, Reflect, and Process

A graphic with the words PAUSE REFLECT PROCESS in blue-purple font and written in all caps.

In light of the violent attack on the Capitol building in Washington, D.C. on Wednesday, January 6th, we paused all of our regular social media posts. We wanted to give plenty of space for news organizations to share updates on what was happening during the attack and information following the aftermath. We also wanted to give you, our dear readers, time to pause.

Today we are sharing resources with you on how to discuss what happened and recommendations for self care.
