JUSTICE IN JUNE

21-DAY RACIAL EQUITY HABIT BUILDING CHALLENGE
- Have you ever made a successful change in your life? Perhaps you wanted to exercise more, eat less, or change jobs? Think about the time and attention you dedicated to the process. A lot, right? Change is hard. Creating effective social justice habits, particularly those dealing with issues of power, privilege, supremacy and leadership is like any lifestyle change. Setting our intentions and adjusting what we spend our time doing is essential. It’s all about building new habits. Sometimes the hardest part is just getting started. The good news is, there’s an abundance of resources just waiting to empower you to be a more effective player in the quest for equity and justice. Please use this plan just as it is, or adapt it to a sector, an ethnic/racial group, or interest area.

EAP provides confidential counseling to members and their household members to assist in solving personal, family and work-related problems. Counseling services include assessments, short-term counseling and community referrals. Counseling is available to anyone who lives with the covered employee.
EAP will connect members with a local attorney who can answer basic legal questions and provide free confidential consultation. If it is necessary for a member to retain legal counsel, our service will assist with making a referral.
Meet with a financial counselor to review budgeting advice, suggestions for positive spending habits, creditor repayment plans, student loan consolidation, and much more. Members and counselors will work as a team to determine the best plan to achieve your financial goals.
We maintains a relationship with the Child Care Resource Network to provide child care referrals and support to members and their household. The CCRN monitors the registration of licenses for providers and advocates for high quality, accessible care. They can also provide information on parenting education and other family services.
A Registered Dietician or Holistic Health Coach can provide members with professional consultation regarding nutrition concerns including diet, weight management, allergies and food sensitivities as well as meal planning.
We will connect employees with reliable services and resources for both the senior needing support and the caregiver. Information will be provided about: caregiver resources, home care options, classes for those helping older relatives or friends, navigating Medicaid/Medicare/Social Security and other benefits.
MEDIATION AND CONFLICT RESOLUTION
When people disagree with one another, there are options besides fighting or walking away. Mediation and conflict resolution can help. We partner with Child & Family Services Center for Resolution and Justice to provide mediation. In more than 75% of the cases mediated, parties reach agreement, avoiding stress and costly legal expenses. Workplace mediation and conflict resolution can serve as a proactive approach to preventing litigation and promoting a healthier work environment.
If it is determined that a member will need further or more specialized services, the EAP counselor will make arrangements for referral and follow-up service to the most appropriate level of care in the community. We have a well developed network of affiliates with whom we work regularly to provide seamless care to our clients.
