Special Note:  Click here to complete the MAGPS Anti-Racism & Racial Equality AssessmentSo far, over 200 MAGPS community members have received the assessment but only about 50 have submitted a completed survey. We are extending the survey deadline and asking everyone to bring their voice into this important conversation by taking the time to complete it. The ARC team will use community feedback to guide the work of MAGPS Anti-Racism efforts. We truly need all voices and hearts on this one!  In appreciation for completing the survey, respondents will be eligible to enter a drawing for a complimentary MAGPS Conference Registration!

We are pleased to offer the White Racial Affinity Group on Sunday, June 25th from 3:00-5:00 p.m. This Anti-Racism Affinity Group is for White participants and is co-convened by Barbara Cristy and Jill Penaloza. This group meets the 4th Sunday of every month.

Please mark your calendars for upcoming meetings:  July 23rd and August 27th. 

This meeting of the White Affinity Group will be on Zoom. You will receive the Zoom meeting link after you have registered In this meeting we will discuss our own experiences of identity, race and racism, and how white supremacy culture affects us, our practices and MAGPS. 

Although these groups are not traditional interpersonal process groups, we do expect to be attuned to what comes up in the here and now. The purpose is not to enhance clinical group skills but to use group process to deepen our awareness of how we can become anti-racists in an anti-racist organization.

The MAGPS BIPOC Affinity Group meets on the 3rd Sunday of each month. You will receive an email to register for these meetings or you can register by going to the MAGPS website and clicking on Events.
