Peer Led Support Group for People of Color, or POC PLSG, a collaboration between SAPAC and MESA, is a drop-in, confidential healing space for survivors of sexual assault, intimate partner violence, stalking, and/or sexual harassment, who identify as people of color. Facilitated by student staff, POC PLSG is a place for survivors of color at UM to find not only community but healing opportunities, including anxiety-reduction, self-care activities, and mindfulness.
SAPAC's Peer-led Support Group is a weekly, drop-in, confidential healing space for UM students who identify as survivors of sexual violence, intimate partner violence, sexual harassment, or stalking. The group aims to empower survivors and facilitate resilience, reconnection, stress relief, and anxiety reduction for our participants. We’ll be doing this through semi-structured activities, self-care practices, creative arts, and creating a safe space for sharing if participants choose to do so. Overall, we want to provide a supportive, understanding community that welcomes UM student survivors of all ages, genders, and identities. Activities during the Sunday and Tuesday meetings of each week with be the same, so people have the opportunity to do the activities regardless of which day they can attend.
