Ensuring the safety of our communities is paramount. Yet public vitriol is skyrocketing, tensions flare at a moment’s notice and Oregon is consistently ranked in the top five states of per capita hate incidents. Participants will learn how to identify, understand and overcome the inhibitions that prevent them from supporting targets of hate. They will learn and use tactics for interrupting verbal hate; while centering and empowering the target. They will understand the risks involved in intervention and how to de-escalate a situation. Offered by As the Spirit Moves Us.
Tuesday, February 4th at 5:30 PM @ Brentwood Darlington Community Center 7211 SE 62nd Ave Portland, OR 97206.
