Saratoga Educational Equity Network (SEEN), Saratoga BLM, Stomping Grounds Camp and C.R.E.A.T.E. Community Studios are teaming up to form and support Youth Affinity Groups for BIPOC, LGBTQ+ and allies. During this Open House you can meet the team, find out more information about Affinity Groups and pick-up a free art kit to participate in our collaborative community mural, titled “To Be Loved,” a project inspired by Martin Luther King’s message of Radical Love.
**Art Meetup @ 3pm
This event is intended to bring Youth BIPOC and LGBTQ+ individuals, as well as allies, together to explore the creation of Affinity Groups in Saratoga Springs. Affinity groups are intentional gatherings of people who share a similar identity. These groups are places of reflection, dialogue, and support – safe spaces where youth can process their emotions, develop a stronger sense of self, and build a common language to address issues of race, ethnicity, sexuality, and gender diversity.
Family Friendly, FREE to attend and bring a friend!
