The LGBT Center and Women*s Center invite undergraduate and graduate students to take part in one or more of the special race- and identity-alike workshops led by Sheltreese McCoy during her upcoming residency at Princeton. RSVP here: https://goo.gl/vQZkAu. The workshops will focus on participants learning specific skills (listed below) and building community with other Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Non-Binary, Queer, Intersex, Asexual (LGBTQIA) students. During the workshops you will have the opportunity to participate in community-building exercises that uplift and document your experiences, and learn both personal and professional skill sets, including:
- non-violent communication strategies;
- creative problem-solving tactics; and
- community care and accountability measures
The goal of having race- and identity-alike gatherings is to provide different kinds of LGBTQIA spaces for students to engage and talk about their experiences, since students of different races, sexualities and genders have different community-building and anti-racist work they need to do. However, there will also be a gathering for all students to come together at the end of Sheltreese’s residency (more detail below).
