The Identity Collectives provide students, staff, and faculty with the opportunity to build community and engage in intra-group dialogue. Collectives are offered to recognize the multiple and intersecting identities we all carry and the importance of a supportive community as we explore our intersecting identities. Trained students and staff facilitate each collective group.
Created in 2002, Identity Collectives serve as an act of love and commitment to create sacred and healing spaces, to name our common needs across differences and spectrums, to dismantle systems of oppression, and engage with the complex struggle and beauty of collective liberation.
Collectives do this by:
- Creating space for support, joy, and community.
- Engaging in critical and intersectional, life-sustaining dialogue.
- Inter-collective capacity building.
Please note: These are affinity spaces. As such, we ask that all participants are members of the named community of each collective.
