The staff at LSPIRG are SO excited to launch our #HomeButNotAlone campaign! As we approach the holiday season, many folks will be heading home to environments that may be uncomfortable or unsafe for a range of reasons. We want you to know that you are not alone <3
We have taken the time to draft a list of validations, crisis and support lines, and tangible disclosure and grounding tips. We tried to include as many contexts as possible (with the goal of the campaign to support queer, trans and racialized folks). If you are needing resources that aren’t listed, reach out and we can help you track down whatever you might be looking for.
(As a reminder, crisis lines are available 24/7 and are a great resource for suggestions, help with safety planning, questions, and even if you want advice on how to support a friend).
With love and solidarity,
The LSPIRG Team <3
WELCOME TO LSPIRG
Laurier Students' Public Interest Research Group (LSPIRG) is an incorporated not-for-profit organization that helps to develop advocacy tools and avenues for action. We operate autonomously from the university to uniquely serve both students and community members.
We fund independent and community oriented research projects through CCRLA (The Centre for Community Research Learning and Action), provide Board and Steering Committee experience, offer many different volunteer opportunities, and work with students and community members to raise awareness on a range of social and environmental justice issues. LSPIRG is funded through membership dues, paid automatically by students via the student levy and paid voluntarily by all other community members.
LSPIRG has been operating on the Waterloo campus since 2005 and have recently opened a Brantford office as of 2016.
