Several times per semester, roughly between three and six, this working group provides lunch and hosts a public conversation on a topic related to anti-racism, decolonization, resisting homonationalism, transphobia, and more. The conversations are facilitated by current volunteers and/or collective members and take place in the Grey House (51 Bader Lane). Past talks have included “Sex, Shame, and Pleasure”, “Reimagining the Politics of Allyship”, and “Building Communities of Care: A Conversation on Burnout and Self-Care”. Recently, one of our board members has started a series of Lunchtime chats titled Navigating Trudeau’s Canada, where we expore contemporary national trends and injustices. These talks work to give the opportunity for students and community members to have conversations on important topics that come up in our communities and in our organization.
