We hope this message finds you safe and warm, as we share our Austin Grief winter newsletter! We have many wonderful updates to share with you, our Austin Grief Community!
“In a country desperate for exactly that sort of collective mourning, New Orleans’ second line funeral rituals, with their communal nature and celebratory underpinnings, could serve as a much-needed source of inspiration and catharsis.”

Fantastic article on the power of the second line and community grieving together.
We are excited to participate in Amplify Austin's 24 hours of giving this March and we are especially excited to announce that your donation will be matched dollar for dollar up to $15,000 by a generous “challenge grant” from The Anderson Charitable Foundation!

“If this particular Sunday in May is extra hard for you - and there are so many possible reasons why this might be - please know, there is nothing wrong with you. Your grief, and your love, are valid and deserve acknowledgement, love, and support. ⁣”

An important reminder as we head into weekend: Grief is not a disease. It's not a problem to be solved.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Mothers' grief has always been at the center of activism and demands for change. Mother's Day began as an anti-war holiday: it was a commentary by, from, and for women on losing their husbands, brothers, sons, and fathers to the machinery of war.⁣

The original Mother's Day was a protest.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
And yet, instead of being talked about as something normal, as something to be tended and supported, we treat grief like a disease, a disorder, a problem to be solved. Now, as it's been throughout modern history, we've treated grieving mothers like they're mentally ill - deserving of institutionalization.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
💠Grief is a mother's issue.⁣💠
💠Grief is a women's issue.⁣💠
💠Grief is a social justice issue.⁣💠

This Mother's Day, we name the individual losses of motherhood, yes, and also the larger cultural sweep: the increased death rates for Black mothers, the medicalization of grief for grieving mothers and women of all kinds, the policies of colonization, oppression, and exclusion that create grief for those mothering and those mothered.⁣

Mother's Day is still a protest.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
If this particular Sunday in May is extra hard for you - and there are so many possible reasons why this might be - please know, there is nothing wrong with you. Your grief, and your love, are valid and deserve acknowledgement, love, and support. ⁣⁣

“So shout out to all the ones navigating grief and loss and stress and just normal living that gets hard. And still showing up at work every day. ⁠

You are not alone.”

Thank you for your openness, LC Johnson, founder & CEO of the community space Zora's House.

"Shoutout to the ones who cried in the shower this morning at 8:40 AM, cried so hard that their body shook. Then 'put on the mask' and were office ready by 9. ⁠

Shoutout to the ones who are grieving. The ones caring for sick parents or sick children. The ones navigating a devastating personal loss. The ones who feel lost. The ones who are exhausted. The anxious ones. The ones who can't quite name the reason but the tears come anyway. ⁠

My mom is really sick. I don't talk about it every day but I think about it every day. On days when I cry in the morning but boss up for that work presentation. On days when I'm group chatting my family during a staff meeting. On days when you ask, 'Hey! How are you?' and I smile and say 'I'm good!' ⁠

Shoutout to the women who so often bear these burdens. And shoutout to the men who have even less space in their lives to grieve or be exhausted or cry on someone's shoulder. ⁠

My mom has had a rough week this week and this morning I cried so hard in the shower. I wanted to take the day off but I had a meeting. I'm grateful that I run my own company and we have a work culture that prioritizes mental health but honestly, sometimes work feels easier than the rest of it.⁠

So shout out to all the ones navigating grief and loss and stress and just normal living that gets hard. And still showing up at work every day. ⁠

You are not alone. ⁠

You are not alone.⁠

You are not alone. ⁠

I'm pretty sure we're the silent majority.⁠

Update: Definitely cried during my first meeting of the day but at least I was smart enough to wear waterproof mascara!!!"⁠

Recently, LC Johnson, founder & CEO of the community space Zora's House, shared on LinkedIn how difficult it can be to juggle work and being a real human being dealing with the obstacles life throws at us. Thank you, LC, for your words, for being candid, and for normalizing being honest about hardship—we appreciate you 💙

It can be very difficult to make the call for grief support after a loss. When a call comes into Austin Grief you will reach Bea Casarez, our wonderful Intake Care Coordinator. Having a compassionate person on the phone can make all the difference in that first call. We have been sharing reflections of 'WHY' from our dedicated Team, and as we ask for that final reach to meet our Amplify goal, we share Bea's WHY, "Grief and loss can be isolating. We should all have access to mental health services. It's okay to ask for help."

We have 2 hours to reach our AMPLIFY goal and we are so close! We have been so moved with our community's generosity!

Austin Grief is dedicated to our mission to provide hope, healing and transformation! Please help us reach our goal of $15,000 this Amplify!
