The Circle is a discussion and support group where we use a set of questions to guide a discussion. The group chooses topics that relate to being well. We look at issues through a feminist lens and share our wisdom with each other. The Circle is a place to come to rest and connect. The group is open to all women, including trans women.
The Circle will meet the 3rd Tuesday of the month (except holidays) at 419 Graham Ave. Registration is required.
