We are here to listen and support you as our nation works through this election transition. If you are struggling with the personal impact of the election, the tone of the national discussions, or if you are experiencing negative treatment, threats or more subtle forms of oppression because of your race or ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity, religious affiliation, country of origin or other aspect of your identity, please call to schedule an appointment (402-280-2735) or drop by our Paws To Talk session on Wednesdays at 1:30pm at the Skutt Fireplace.
