Have you seen articles about wearing a safety pin? Have you been wearing one? Do you want to wear one? In the wake of the national election physical and verbal assaults towards Muslims, queer folks, and people of color have increased. Many of us want to be prepared to respond and interrupt an incident if it happens around us. Come to a 2 hour interactive workshop to create a plan, practice nonviolent intervention skills, and increase your confidence in being a safe person.
