Join us for our February event to learn and discuss what care and support can look like in non-monogamy. We will discuss changes that can occur with age, mental health support, and managing chronic conditions through an intersectional lens. This will include a conversation on how the system we live in does and does not support people in non-traditional relationship structures, ideas for navigating the care needs of multiple partners and others we care about, and self-care. We will utilize safe space practices to encourage discussion and experience sharing.

Christy Littlefield, LMSW, is a queer, solo polyamorous social worker who conducts training, outreach, and educational programming for a nonprofit in NYC that focuses on supporting individuals living with dementia and their caregivers.
