Melanin Moms

This free groups provides a place for moms to process, gain support, and to feel as though they are not alone in an inclusive space.

 

Group Purpose: Mothers, especially mothers of color, are feeling the overwhelming burden of society now more than ever, with the effects of the pandemic, racial injustice, politics, work, educating children, and managing households can be exhausting. Yet mothers often do not take the time to take care of their own emotional needs. Within this space, BIPOC mothers will be able to connect, support one another, and gain new perspectives on common issues impacting their daily lives. This group currently meets virtually.
