Women of Color

Facilitated by Ashanti Boston, MHC

Weekly, Tuesdays at 5:00pm
Via a secure, Live Video Platform.
19 yrs and older. (A Closed Group)

This group creates a safe space for women of color to talk about the struggles of balancing their racial identity and gender identity. They will have an opportunity to talk about how society can sometimes make the two identifiers at odds and learn how to love and stand up for both.

Examples of topics of discussion: 

  • What it means to be a woman of color
  • What it means to be a woman
  • Feelings like one has to choose between being a person of color or being a woman
  • The struggles of loving men and other genders of color
  • Having more than one marginalized identifier
  • Loving all of who you are

We will call you for a brief introductory call, to confirm the group is right for you.
