Thursday, July 16, 6:00 – 8:00 pm CDT – WEBINAR
As you struggle to find your “new normal” in this rapidly evolving world, things might not always go smoothly. You might make mistakes, second-guess yourself, and have moments (or even days or weeks) of fear and uncertainty. But the trick to finding peace isn’t learning to do things perfectly; on the contrary, it’s treating yourself with a little extra kindness and self-compassion. In this interactive webinar, Wright Foundation co-founder and president Dr. Judith Wright will teach you how to develop more care and compassion for yourself, especially in turbulent times. REGISTER

The Navajo Nation is one of the worst-hit communities by Covid-19 in the United States. Since Covid-19 was first reported in the Nation on March 15, infection rates per capita have become the highest in the country when compared with any individual state. As of 14 June, 6,611 cases have been confirmed. More than 300 people have died after contracting the virus as well – a toll higher than 15 states. The Navajo Nation is the largest reservation of its kind, in both size and population. More than 173,000 people live within its borders, in pockets of communities spread across the deserts and canyons of Utah, Arizona and New Mexico. If it were a state, the Nation would be larger than 10 others. Learn more about how the Navajo Nation is coping.
