How do you implement self-care into your day? As activist, community organizers, disenfranchised people, and friends (since we need more than just allies these days) its imperative to take that time to yourself and practice self-care. Many times when we have a vision for change, but that doesn't always include self-care...

5 Latino Authors: Books Out in 2021 by Latinx Authors to Add to Your Reading List (hiplatina.com) Prisca Dorcas Mojica Rodríguez Isabel Allende Naima Coster Quiara Alegría Hude Maika Moulite and Maritza Moulite 3 Latino-Owned Restaurants in DC: Latino-Owned Businesses in Washington D.C. to Support Right Now - Thrillist La Cosecha -- Union Market Though La Cosecha just opened September 2019, the contemporary market has provided DC with a much-needed space to celebrate Latin American culture, filled with Latino-owned spaces -- including Arcay Chocolates, La Casita, and Peruvian Brothers -- to dine and shop. How to support: See the full list of merchants at La Cosecha. Colada Shop -- 14th Street Corridor Colada Shop, which just opened a location at The Wharf in June, is known throughout the city for bringing the best vibes -- its 14th Street rooftop always being a mainstay for sipping mojitos amongst friends. The cozy Cuban spot has always served biteable classics like empanadas and Cubanos, but visit their new Wharf location if you’re in the mood for something a bit heartier, like ropa vieja or a Cuban take on shakshuka. How to support: Order Colada Shop online. El Tamarind -- Adams Morgan El Tamarindo first landed in AdMo back in 1982, and is now the longest standing Mexican-Salvadorian restaurant in the city. We’d be willing to wager a bet that their longevity is directly tied to their handmade pupusas, Oaxaca Mules, and chimichangas. The restaurant is also family-run, first opened by Jose Reyes and Betty Reyes, and now managed by their daughter. How to support: Order online directly from El Tamarindo. 3 Latino Organizations: Carecen -- Columbia Heights The Central American Resource Center (CARECEN) was founded back in 1981 to provide legal services to refugees arriving from conflict in Central America. Now, its main goal is fostering the comprehensive development of the Latino population in DC, providing direct services in immigration, housing, and citizenship. How to support: Find out more about pro bono opportunities, volunteer information, and internships with Carecen, or make a donation here.

September 8th, 2021 Like many of us who prefer not to Uber everywhere, Lyft is an option for drivers and passengers to accomplish two tasks: earning money efficiently and arriving at one's desired destination. However, how might legal efforts interrupt that goal? A new Texas law (SB8) threatens to penalize drivers for getting passengers where they need to go―specifically applying to women who seek to exercise their right to access the healthcare they need. In response to this law, on September 3, 2021 Lyft reported their disinterest of this recent law and confirmed their support of women's reproductive rights. Because this law can potentially punish drivers and passengers from accomplishing their goals on the Lyft platform―earning money efficiently and arriving to one's desired location safely―it directly affects the purpose of the platform. Moreover, Lyft has created a Driver Legal Defense Fund to "cover 100% of legal fees for drivers sued under SB8 while driving on our platform."(Lyft).
