QPOC Together: Queer People of Color Together

A monthly community forum and chill space for queer-identified students of color at UC Berkeley. No matter how you identify: Same-Gender Loving, Queer, Butch/Femme, Fluid, Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender, Downe, etc.

QPOC Together is currently inactive, please contact Billy at billyc@berkeley.edu if you are looking for similar opportunities!

ENVISION: White Anti-Racist Network @ GenEq

ENVISION is a discussion space designed to equip white* students, faculty and staff with the tools to analyze white privilege and to challenge racism within and beyond our campus¹ women's and queer communities. ENVISION supports the development of anti-racist practices and can serve as a supplement to social justice work in other spaces on campus. We welcome participants who are already actively involved in such spaces, as well as folks who are new to social justice work and interested in these conversations.

*ENVISION focuses on white students, faculty and staff for three reasons: 1) it shifts the burden off of people of color to educate white people about racism and oppression; 2) white people can play an important role in supporting each other to challenge racism; and 3) it creates an atmosphere that allows white people to share more openly and honestly about race, creating more opportunities for growth and learning.

ENVISION is currently inactive, email Marisa at mboyce@berkeley.edu if you're looking for similar opportunities.

Women's Chat Circles

A monthly discussion space for women and women of color on different topics each month.

M^3: Men, Masculinity and Manhood

A space for men to talk about masculinity and manhood. Interested in talking about the nuances, difficulties, and pleasures of masculinity? Want a space in which to comfortably talk about the various forms in which manhood takes? Or to simply discuss what exactly the phrase "being a man" means?
