DESCRIPTION: Studies consistently show that queer people are resilient above and beyond that of their cisgender and/or heterosexual peers. Safer spaces are essential components which allow individuals to grow and recover from systemic, interpersonal, and internalized oppression. This webinar will define ways to practice resilience as well as explore how to intentionally shape safer spaces so resilience can be practiced.
