Us and Them: a Discussion on Middletown and Wesleyan Relations

Have you ever wondered about the relationship between Wesleyan and the Middletown community? Are you involved in Middletown through community service or work? Are you concerned about the ways in which Wesleyan does (or doesn’t) facilitate interaction with the community?
Come to an open workshop and discussion, hosted by the WesDEFs, to examine our relationship with the Middletown community and to explore positive ways to engage with our neighbours and break down the barriers between us.

Date: Wednesday, November 6

From the WesDEFs:

Still confused about Queer Life at Wes?
Not sure what that term your friend keeps using actually means?
Just want to spend an hour talking about queer stuff?

If you answered yes to any of these, come to WesDEF’s (Wesleyan Diversity Education Facilitators) Queer Questions!

We will be leading several activities and facilitating a discussion about both Queer Life at Wes and about queerness more generally. If you missed BiLeGaTAs your freshman year or still had questions after it, this workshop can serve as a valuable complement to BiLeGaTAs, but is open to anyone and everyone!
