Peer Led Gathering By and For the Black Community

About this event

Join us every last Wednesday of the month at 7 PM EST for “Your Black Matters” a new, virtual peer space for us, led by and for the Black community.

It is a space to give one another support. ALL Black people are welcome, there is no such thing as “not Black enough” -- if you identify as Black, you are Black, and you are welcome.

Join us as we build community and support one another, and hold space for each other to talk about the Black experience in a safe space.

**This peer-space is not therapy and not a dating service.**

This space IS, however, a safe space to be heard and build a community.

Comfort Agreement: In This Space We...

  • Understand that this is a gathering of community supporting one another, not a clinical support group.
  • Acknowledge you are just as valuable listening as you are sharing.
  • Strive for everyone to feel welcome here, regardless of how you identify your Blackness.
  • Do not have to agree with each other to still hold space for one another. Here, we see and respect our shared humanity and every voice is heard, even if it differs from our own.
  • Only give advice when asked for it and speak from our own experience
  • Understand that it is okay to be vulnerable and you don’t have to put on a “strong face”.
  • Invite one another to show up as our authentic selves, take up space, and be genuine.
  • Give one another an equal chance to take up space.
  • Encourage exchanges that are respectful and mutual, in and out of this space.
  • Honor that what is shared here stays here.
  • Encourage you to self-advocate for your needs.
  • Collectively work together to create a safe space.
