Students for Racial Justice Support Group
Weekly on Wednesdays | 5:00pm – 6:00pm | RSVP
We acknowledge the emotional and social challenges of doing antiracism work while adjusting to the Covid-19 pandemic that has disproportionately impacted BIPOC. We name white supremacist terrorism as a threat to public health. Self-care is crucial as we engage in activism on the ground and/or from our homes. With great respect, we offer an open, weekly, virtual support group for CUNY SPH students promoting racial justice. The goal is mutual empowerment through sharing experiences and resources in a supportive environment where stress can be managed. If you would like more information please email Student Wellness Counselor Sherry Adams at firstname.lastname@example.org.
