Taking an intersectional approach, the Centers for Cultural Understanding and Social Change present the third program in this series, to help members of the campus community better understand their civil liberties.

Community partners, Advancing Justice and Invisible to Invincible, will facilitate discussion around ways to protect and support each other, build safety plans, and role-playing interactions with law enforcement.

* Disclaimer: Discussion and roleplay will address possibly triggering situations. Facilitators are committed to creating a mindful space, but are not licensed mental health professionals. They can connect participants to further resources as needed.
