In this current political climate there has been an increase in hate crimes and harassment. It is upsetting and often intimidating to witness such harassment. You may have been witness and been to afraid to respond in the moment. This is completely understandable. We will learn through role play and experiential exercises how to respond in those situations and engage in conversations in order to become inspired and empowered to act in the moment. Refreshments provided, no fee, pre-registration requested. REGISTER HERE.
