My name is Casey Stewart Upton and THANK YOU for believing in the work of the Emotional Labor Union. It means the world that you see the value in what we are creating together. The ELU began after a pretty uncomfortable solo vacation in 2017. It was there I realized I was completely out of touch with my inner voice and had been putting myself last. I decided then I would create a space for women to thrive - behold the ELU whose mission is to amplify women's voices and experiences through curated feminist topics. Check us out at www.theelu.com!

The 4 Values of the ELU:
  1. Voices as power: The ELU is a safe space and a platform to talk about your experiences. Devoting time to critical thinking and interaction empowers us to sharpen our speaking skills and define the source of our feelings as well as reminds us we have voices that deserve to be heard.
  2. Community IRL: The ELU brings people together in real life who prioritize being intentional and carving out time and space to knowing themselves and others better. This is a group that provides love, support and where no question or opinion is off-limits.
  3. Strength in numbers: The more time we spend having invigorating in-person discussions, finding common ground with others, and cementing how we feel about topics that affect us, the more powerful we become both individually and collectively.
  4. Feminism as Self-Care: Members of the ELU practice prioritizing themselves by devoting time to pursuing their interests and their $ by supporting causes they think are worthwhile. The ELU gives everyone a nourishing and energizing experience that allows you to find your own voice on matters that are important to you.

Help get this baby off the ground because you believe in the mission and values of the ELU! You'll receive notes from each discussion as well as a personal writing about my thoughts on that monthly topic. This tier also exists for those who might find our ticket price prohibitive. We believe in the fair compensation of women's labor but also want everyone to have access! If this cost is still prohibitive to you, please email [email protected]

Become an official member of the ELU! Get a guaranteed seat at each discussion event, priority access to posting blog content, official ELU swag, and access to the ELU's feminist library! Can't make an event?

Goals
6 of 20 patrons
When I reach 20 patrons I'll move into phase 2 of the ELU which will be a podcast/opening other groups in other cities.
