In this episode, I had the pleasure of interviewing Aditi Juneja. Aditi is a lawyer, an immigrant, and a feminist who formerly led/co-created Resistance Manual and OurStates.org.
Her background as both a lawyer and an activist, and how she noticed the disconnect between the purposes and the aims of criminal law and how it was being implemented. Aspects of her advocacy job that lead to her founding of the Resistance Manual and her Self Care Sundays podcast. How self-care is about having the tools, resources, and practices that allow you to thrive in this world and how our identities shape how we see self-care. How privilege plays a role in skewing our views of self-care and how to engage a conversation on privilege which is productive.

Aditi: She said, "I try to get rid of the blame and the shame and kind of explain that, being born white is like being born with access to a country club.
