30 Day Wellness Challenge
During the month of April, dozens of New Yorkers will engage in 30 days of wellness practices to help improve their mental, spiritual and physical health.
This challenge will help decrease burnout, fuel creativity, and foster self-care.
#30DaysofWellness is hosted by EQNY’s Bodily Autonomy and Disability Justice & Mental Health Access committees and all proceeds will help advance their agenda.
Individual Registration is a suggested $30.00 donation. However, no one will be turned away. Participants will receive:
- calendar with a different daily wellness activity. Each take between 15-30 minutes. See examples above;
- booklet of directions and options (e.g yoga poses, recipes) for each day;

These are the principles that guide our work together:
We acknowledge the LGBTQI communities of New York are diverse in many ways and there is no single agenda that can entirely represent all LGBTQI New Yorkers;
We aim to have a thoughtfully diverse, equitable and inclusionary coalition that works to implement mechanisms by which those who choose to be involved can gain access and inform our decisions and priorities;
Achieving full protections for our trans communities is a high priority in a state where most other legal protections are provided;
The challenges of the LGBTQI community are at the intersection of multiple identities: racism, classism, sexism, economic issues and many more are central to supporting LGBTQI people;
We support each others organizations and efforts, recognizing partnerships are valuable, as we work towards building a powerful voice for LGBTQI people and organizations throughout the state;
New York is a large state with different lived experiences in different areas of the state. An LGBTQI state coalition must represent all of these areas, being intentional not to over-represent the New York City region.
