Created in 2002, Identity Collectives serve as an act of love and commitment to our common desire, across differences and spectrums, to create sacred and healing spaces, dismantle power, oppression and privilege,engage with the complex struggle and beauty of collective liberation.
Collectives do this by:
1. Creating breathing room and space for support
2. Engaging in critical and intersectional, life sustaining dialogue
3. Inter-collective capacity building.
Recognizing the multiple and intersecting identities we all carry and the importance of a supportive community as we explore our privileged and marginalized identities, the Identity Collectives provide students with the opportunity to build community and talk together both within their specific collectives and in inter-group dialogues.
Each collective group is facilitated by trained students and staff. Please note: We ask that you self-identify with the collective that you wish to join.
