[CONNECT] Staying safe out there! At home and on the streets.

June 11, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm CDT


Join FORGE and Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin, Inclusion Health Clinic for a structured discussion and connection.

Topic:  Staying safe out there! At home and on the streets


As we navigate new (as well as familiar) situations and environments, it’s important to review how we can stay safer in our day to day lives. We might be at home more these days, possibly with people who are less supportive (or even abusive). We might be out protesting and rallying, and unsure how we can negotiate our advocacy efforts and stay physically healthy. We’ll have a guided discussion about multiple ways we can stay safer in our lives – with ourselves, with our loved ones/close contacts, and with the broader world.

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!
