Support & Discussion Groups

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.

What's Your Story!

Our main goal for this group is to build and feel more a part of a community.  Through conversations about the similarities and differences in group members' experiences, we hope to gain a better understanding of other perspectives and view people in a new light.

Advocating for Minorities

We will be going over what advocating is and how you can decide what situations need advocating.  We will also discuss techniques of how to advocate in different situations and for different minorities including race, gender, sexual preference, identity, disability, etc.  We will be addressing when stepping in can be helpful and what kinds of things to say to best assist in a situation.  Also, the view minorities have about others who advocate for them.

 

This group will focus on advocating but is welcome to any other topics which the group feels important to bring up in the discussion.  This group is welcome to any identity and will respect the opinions of all its members.
