Racial and Ethnic Minority Microaggressions At Work and At Home

Monday September 18th, 2017, 8-9:30pm EST, 5-6:30pm PST
Facilitated by Jessica Bleuer, MA, MEd., RDT & Adam Stevens


We invite members of color and racialized minorities to join together to share experiences of racism at work and at home. We hope to co-create a space where we can share the multiple feelings that arise from these daily injustices, self-care strategies, and insight about how to respond in professional or personal settings next time we are confronted with this form of racism.
