Race & Identity-Alike LGBTQIA Community & Skill Building Workshops with Sheltreese McCoy

  • Locations Disclosed on RSVP (map)

Monday Feb 19--Friday, Feb 23 (exact times/dates vary)
Locations to Be Disclosed Upon Registration

The Women*s Center and LGBT 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.

During the workshops, Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Non-Binary, Queer, Intersex, Asexual (LGBTQIA) students will have the opportunity to participate in community-building exercises that uplift and document their experiences, as well as develop 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 with and talk about their experiences while honoring that students of different races, sexualities and genders have different community-building and anti-racist work they need to do.
There will also be a gathering for all students to come together at the end of Sheltreese’s residency Friday, Feb 23rd from 11:00am-1:00pm (RSVP for this using the link below).
