Where We Build Workshop: Overcoming Barriers and Accessing Care

Wednesday, October 18, 2017 - 3:00pm to 5:00pm

We all have the right to access care to address our physical and emotional health needs, and to advocate for our needs and those of others. This workshop will explore: How do sexuality and gender impact access to care? What skills can I utilize to act as a self-advocate or to advocate for others? How can I access health care services and how can I overcome barriers to accessing care? What resources exist in our community and how can I access them?

Next workshop—
Oct. 25: Bystander Intervention

Where We Build gives participants the knowledge and skills they need to help create the world they want to see. The five two-hour workshops are facilitated by YWCA Clark County and Planned Parenthood Columbia Willamette staff. 

Students who attend all sessions may be eligible to participate in further volunteer and internship opportunities with Planned Parenthood Columbia Willamette and YWCA Clark County. Food will be provided at each session.
