Support WRAC with a tax-deductible donation through the UI Foundation

WRAC provides groups, facilitator training, speaker events, individual counseling, community programming, IWIS, and other services with a small budget and the work of many volunteers. Each gift to WRAC is matched many times over by the work of student and community volunteers. All donations, big or small, are appreciated! Donations are tax-deductible.

Donations to the Women's Resource and Action Center Fund support current services and programs including Iowa N.E.W. Leadership. Donations to the Women's Resource and Action Center Endowment Fund help secure the financial future of the Center.

Support & Discussion Groups

The Women’s Resource and Action Center (WRAC) at The University of Iowa is a diverse community dedicated to fostering women’s individual empowerment and systemic solutions to all forms of oppression. The Center leads and collaborates on projects that serve UI students, staff, faculty, and the greater community. Call 319-756-3456 for more information.

Much of the liveliness and community of WRAC comes from our support, discussion, and enrichment groups. All groups are led by trained facilitators, most of whom are student and community volunteers with interests and skills they want to share.
Group participation is free unless otherwise stated (such as for purchase of supplies needed for group activities), though we do request participants’ help to defray WRAC’s costs with donations of $10 for the total duration of each group, if they can.

Spring Groups

 

Mindfully Managing Stress

Our Mindfully Managing Stress group will help you learn some mindfulness techniques to use in coping with stress, relaxation techniques to help with anxiety and better sleep habits, and to learn to stray from destructive habits to productive habits while working on time management.

 

Body Love in an Age of Perfection

This group will aim to foster a positive body image in an era where media representations of perfection often bring us down.  We will discuss ways to develop and maintain positive relationships with our bodies.

 

Sorry, I’m Not Sorry

This group will discuss what assertiveness is and why it’s important.  We’ll talk about how to develop assertiveness and share ideas with one another.

The group will also discuss communication habits and other behaviors that can thwart a person’s efforts to be assertive, like over-apologizing, and how to be more aware of those.

 

Feminist Readers & Writers

Open group for feminist readers and writers.  We will choose three feminist books (as a group) to read and discuss throughout the semester.  We’ll also read and discuss group members’ original feminist writing (for those who wish to share their own creative work).
Come with ideas of feminist books you’d like to read this semester.
All generations and genders are welcome.

 

The Gray Agenda

This group is designed to be a safe space for those who fall under the non-monosexual umbrella (bi, pan, omni, queer, questioning, heteroflexible, etc.) and allies.
