Flyer advertising The Well's Survivor Solidarity Hour for survivors of sexual/intimate partner violence to be in community with other survivors.

Survivor Solidarity Hour is a weekly, year-round, program where survivors of violence and allies can come together, meet and hang out in a safe space at The Well. It takes place every Tuesday from 12:30-1:30pm in The Well's Recovery Clubhouse. This is not a therapeutic group but rather a casual, supportive space. Students can engage in activities such as coloring, playing games, or engaging in conversation. 

Please e-mail myoptions@vcu.edu for more information.
