As we see media accounts of attacks against immigrants, Muslims, and other populations, many of us have asked ourselves, "what would I do if I were there?"

The good news is that there are skills and techniques that you can learn and practice to keep others safe.

You don't have to be passive! This training will show you how to respond. Sheri Wander, trainer for Meta Peace Team, and other facilitators will co-teach the basic tactics you can use to de-escalate or redirect threats and harassment. 

In addition to the full-cost tickets below through the reservation link below we have set aside a number of free or reduced cost tickets for each event for those who need them. There are also some spaces set aside for members of targeted communities (people of color, LGBTQ community, Muslims, immigrants, etc).
