The second part of the workshop will be two-fold, (a) to explore how API students experiences intersect with the sociopolitical climate and (b) barriers/challenges to practicing self-and other compassion and solidarity building in the times of loss of normalcy, changing sociopolitical climate and shelter-in-place.
