Online Adult Support and Social Skills Group: Advocating for Ourselves and Others @ Google Hangouts

For this week’s group, we will explore the idea of advocacy across a wide range of contexts! We will discuss some of the crowning legislative achievements of the Civil Rights movement in America, the importance of voting, and how to recognize and report harassment and discrimination in the workplace or school. To conclude the evening, we will play a spinner board trivia game featuring notable human rights activists!

If you have never joined a video call on Google Meet before, no worries! This is a learning experience for all of us. Here are your instructions:

1. Direct message me (Jordan Fogle, Co-organizer) the email address you would prefer we send an invitation to. On the week of the event, an invitation will appear in your inbox and will include a URL to join!

2. Google Hangouts may ask you to log in to your email account before you are able to join.

3. Make sure the browser you are using is either Chrome, Firefox, or Edge, and that you have downloaded the latest version. If you have Safari, make sure you have downloaded the appropriate plug-in.

4. Secure a computer/phone with a camera and a microphone! We want to see your lovely face!

5. As side conversations will likely disrupt the flow of discussion, plan on muting your microphone initially and focus on communication through the chat feature, at least until we can devise a way to call on folks one at a time.

6. Don’t hesitate to message directly me if you need further guidance or clarification!
