Online “Open” Support Group for BIPOC Adults, 8/22/22, 6:00 PM – 7:30 PM ET
August 22 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm, Free
DESCRIPTION: This is the first of our Open Support Groups for people of color (18+) with an Asperger/Autism profile. These spaces are peer led and provide an opportunity for participants to explore how their multiple identities show up and address their specific needs, by sharing experiences and offering support to one another. We are running these meetings through the Winter and then will determine next steps for future programming based on interest and feedback.
