WLRC’s Affinity Groups will provide students who share an identity or professional interest space to gather, discuss shared experiences, support each other through challenges, and affirm and celebrate their communities. Each group will meet once a month and be facilitated by WLRC staff.
We recognize that these groups encompass broad populations that will have some shared experiences as well as many varied and unique cultures and histories. Our goal is to create spaces for us to celebrate these differences while building solidarity and support for each other. We will consider creating additional groups in the future based on the needs and interests of our participants.
- We ask that all participants wear a mask to protect everyone’s health and safety.
- Snacks will be available for takeaway after each gathering.
- Building and suite accessibility info is available on our website.
Please contact us with any questions or access requests: firstname.lastname@example.org or (312) 413-1025.
