Weekly Discussion Groups
Drop-in discussion groups are open to people of all genders and sexualities, and may include snacks. Discussion topics are chosen in advance by the previous week's group by popular vote and therefore vary from week to week.
Each discussion group will use the Collective's Safer Space Guidelines as a framework for creating their own discussion and space guidelines. Questioning folks are welcome!
ALL GROUPS START IN SEPTEMBER. NO REGISTRATION REQUIRED, FEEL FREE TO JUST SHOW UP!
All discussion groups will start off online in 2022, either via discord or zoom (vote in your respective channels), and will hopefully transition to hybrid/in-person when COVID restrictions allow that
