[CONNECT] Sparkle, Pop, Boom: Staying Grounded Amid Fireworks and Festivities

July 2, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm CDT

Connect PACTNOW

Join FORGE and Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin, Inclusion Health Clinic for supportive social connection.

Description:

Some of us look forward to July 4.  Some of us dread it.  We’ll chat about the range of emotions people have with the 4th of July.  Many trans and non-binary folks (and other!) live with trauma in their past, may be neurodivergent, or have other memories from prior holidays that impact how they interact with this holiday.  We’ll talk about some specific strategies for how folks who may have difficulties with the sounds and flashing lights can stay grounded.

About CONNECT Coffee, Tea and WE chat support:

CONNECT groups will meet three times each week with a different focus for each session. Thursdays from 6-7:30pm will be a chat-focused, supportive time to share what’s on your mind, and have some focused discussion on a specific topic.

Coffee, Tea and WE is a gently moderated time that allows people to share what’s going on in their lives, connect with others, and feel support during these tough times.

Groups offer opportunities to connect with new and old friends, reduce isolation and loneliness, and have some fun in the process!
