Please join us for the upcoming DEI Critical Conversations: Embracing Pride, Making Relatives Through 2SPLGBTQIA+ Belonging and Healing on Wednesday, June 28, from 3-4 p.m. PDT | 6 -7 p.m. EDT. 

This event for the Fielding community explores critical moments in LGBTQIA+ history that have led us to where we are today with a particular focus on the history and meaning of 2 Spirit identities. In addition, we will discuss not only the challenges that 2SLGBTQIA+ communities face but also the opportunities for healing, change, and progressive work in ensuring that the human rights of 2SLGBTQIA+ individuals and communities are respected within organizations, institutions, and more important, on the interpersonal level. Speakers include Tavi Hawn, LCSW-C, and Dr. Qwo-Li Driskill.
