The Practitioners Series: The Power of Words

Join Tricia Deroche for a session or all in this 4-part series as we explore the impact of language working in Black LGBTQA+ communities and it’s effects on our wellbeing. Let’s open discussion and increase your knowledge of the words used that can harm our communities and those that empower us. Each hour session will focus on the following topics: History of language in our communities and its impact, expanding our understanding of identity and learning to adapt as language evolves. All are welcome.
