Any negative or offensive language toward another person will not be tolerated: This is to be a safe space to share regardless of race, gender, sexual identity, sexual orientation, religious or political beliefs. Please be mindful and respectful of a persons chosen pronouns.
Being a safe space means you also agree to respect a persons right to privacy: Do not disseminate any information shared during this group. Some people in the peer community may be frustrated by the things they see happening, people are allowed to vent and voice those frustrations.
Please keep politics out of the conversation: It is very likely that at times we talk about things happening at the Connecticut Legislative Office Building. New laws proposed or existing laws getting changed which may have an impact on peers in our state. We will focus on the topic and not get into individual political leanings or supporting one party over another.
Thank you for your cooperation in allowing us to host safe, supportive, meaningful meetings and to hold space for those who may be struggling. We are looking forward to seeing you!
