Our focus for the group is to gather together to share discussion, thoughts, ideas, and musings on the media of the month. We will be meeting monthly, and feel free to come and not-come to the meetings as you can. You are welcome to come completely as you are, whether or not you have read the piece up for discussion. We will start with a film in April!

This is a four week class for women who have undergone cancer treatment and are ready to reclaim their sexuality. In the four weeks, we cover body image, intimacy, sensuality, and relationships. Most importantly we will cultivate a community of women who support one another and understand each other's vulnerability.
The class is four weeks starting Mondays, 5 pm to 6:30 pm, April 24th, and ending Monday, May 15th. The cost is $60 for all four weeks. Scholarships available. Register with Tara Galeano, L.P.C., CST.
We learned yesterday that the Department of Education will no longer enforce Title IX to defend transgender students, with agreement from the new Secretary, Betsy DeVos. This decision comes under heavy pressure from Jeff Sessions and the Department of Justice. The broad reaching effect of this choice goes much further than just bathrooms; this change ends all rights and protections afforded to transgender youth under Title IX.
