Please join us for an upcoming listening circle for students to process the Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe v. Wade. This space will provide a chance for students to share what they are thinking and feeling, encouraging mutual understanding and support. 

This is a sharing space with the purpose of listening, storytelling, and connecting. These practices are derived from various indigenous peoples around the world, including nations whose land we currently inhabit. 

During a listening circle, people can expect to have facilitator(s) who ask and respond to the same set of questions prepared around a particular topic or issue. Listening circles are not conversations or debates – they are meant to give a platform to people to share their own experiences, without interruption, response or challenge.

We will be offering multiple circles. Please only choose one session to make sure we can accommodate all who are interested. 

During the listening circles:

  • You may or may not know others in the group. 
  • You’ll be asked guided and facilitated questions to explore topics.
  • You’ll have an opportunity to be listened to, and the responsibility to listen to others.
