Reclaiming Our Time: Radical Self Care Now! When Representative Maxine Waters invoked the phrase “reclaiming my time” during a House Financial Services Committee meeting last year, social media went ablaze. Used by the Congresswoman to demand that her questions be answered, the phrase signaled that it was the moment for Waters—and maybe all of us—to take back our power. In that spirit, CAAM is launching a series dedicated to well-being. Radical self care is the bold act of making your quality of life primary. This series explores how a balanced and vibrant life demands that we take our needs into consideration and act upon them.
