Peer Facilitation Program

Peers for Pride (PfP) is a peer facilitation program of the Gender and Sexuality Center in partnership with the Center for Women’s Gender Studies. Students will take two courses during the academic year, one class in the fall and one in the spring. During the fall semester course, Confronting LGBTQIA+ Oppression: Exploring the Issues and Learning the Skills to Communicate Them, students learn basic facilitation skills while taking an in-depth look at some issues facing lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer individuals. During the spring semester course, Facilitating Dialogues on LGBTQIA+ Oppression: Peers for Pride in Action, peer facilitators have the opportunity to fine-tune their facilitation skills and lead workshops across campus.

No experience is required!

Confronting Anti-Asian Racism: A Bystander Intervention Workshop

The Longhorn Wellness Center is teaming up with the Center for Asian American Studies to put on Confronting Anti-Asian Racism, a 1.5 hour interactive workshop that will lead participants through the history of anti-Asian xenophobia in the US as it relates to the present day Asian American experience. This historical context will provide a foundation for attendees to practice identifying and interrupting anti-Asian bias through the BeVocal bystander intervention model. The workshop requires active participation in small groups, and working through real-world scenarios of microaggression and covert/overt anti-Asian racism. This digital workshop is open to all current UT students, staff and faculty with limited capacity via ZOOM.

Workshop Dates: Monday, March 29, 2021 at 1:30 p.m., repeated Tuesday, March 30, 2021 at 2 p.m.
