More about you!
Please tell us about your racial identity.
We believe it is crucial to create spaces which mirror the larger world in their intersectional and diverse compositions. As such, we are interested in knowing about your racial identity, if you are willing to tell us about it, because it will help us be more intentional in cultivating the cohort of individuals who will be sharing this journey together.
Please tell us about how you identify.
We are interested in knowing a bit about the composition of the group we are convening. If you're willing, tell us how you identify in terms of any/all of the following: gender identity, sexual orientation, ability, state of illness/wellness, formally/informally educated, survivor identity, documentation status, class/class background, languages spoken, state/region/country of origin, neurocognitive spectrum, rural/urban dweller, religious affiliation, everything else you would like us to know about how you move in the world. You can absolutely skip this question, or only offer what feels safe or comfortable at this stage.
We expect that this workshop will be a loving and supportive space for folks to dig deeply into aspects of our intersectional identities--what brings us to this work as well as what we bring to this work.
As such, it will bring stuff up. To that end, we want to know what kind of practices and support systems you may already have in place to resource you during and after the experience. Please tell us a bit about what resilience resources you have in place to support you in this work. Check all that apply.
I have access to my own therapy/mental health support systems.
I have access to a support or self-help group.
I have a circle of family/chosen family/friends who I can reach out to for help, support, processing, etc.
I have a spiritual practice which provides nourishment and support to me.
I have limited resources in this regard. I would like some help on this.

I commit that if I have to cancel, I will let you know ASAP, but definitely no later than Friday, November 4th at 5pm. I also understand that if I cancel after October 28th, I will not get my deposit back.
I am not sure I can commit to that. (If this is the case, please reach out to us directly to discuss your concerns).
