The following events are hosted, organized, co-sponsored, or in collaboration with/by the Peace & Justice Center and are open to the public – we hope you can join us!

We charge a fee for many of our publicly hosted programs. No individual is turned away from any of our our programs due to a lack of funds. People under 25 are not expected to contribute financially. We ask those who are able to pay full price or more for our programs to do. This helps keep our programs financially accessible to all, regardless of income. Not sure if you should pay less, more, or nothing? View our Sliding Scale document to find an amount that feels appropriate to you.

POC in VT Affinity Group

October 16, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm EDT

Free
This program is by people of color, for people of color. It is a monthly gathering for POC to come together to share their experiences and explore their identities. You do not have had to attend previous meetings in order to come. Light snacks provided. Facilitated by Kina Thorpe and Chuck Brewer. This is a free event.
This month’s meeting will focus on body image and self-esteem; specifically how POC manage living in a cultural dominated by Eurocentric standards of beauty. We will also look at recent examples of double standards and the sexualization/fetishization of POC bodies.
