The BIPOC Link-Up is a virtual (and sometimes in-person) monthly series where Black, Indigenous, and People of Color come together to have conversations, build community, learn about and share anti-oppression resources, promote healing, and connect around the well-being of our communities. Sessions are facilitated by BIPOC staff and guest speakers.
Typically, the number of BIPOC Link-Up participants range from 10-30 people a link-up.
BIPOC Link-Up activities include:
- Group and breakout room discussions on relevant topics
- Reflective writing and creative activities
- Presentations by staff and guest speakers on a given topic
who BIPOC Link-Up is for
You belong in this space if you are BIPOC and want to build community with other dope BIPOCs around solidarity, collective justice, and connection. Come make new friends, see some old ones, and grow your impact.
We understand the time may be difficult for some people’s schedules, so please join whenever you’re able. There is no expectation for how many sessions you attend.
FYI, some link-ups are for everyone, some are affinity spaces for specific identities (like the All-Black Link-Up), and some are themed to specific topics depending on the time of year (like Queerness and Gender-fluidity for Pride month).
BIPOC Link-Up happens once a month on Zoom or in person. Registration for BIPOC Link-Up is open for the rest of the year.
