Rapid Responder Training

St. Michael & All Angels Episcopal Church
1704 Northeast 43rd Avenue
Portland, OR 97213, US (map)



St. Michael’s Immigrant Welcoming Congregation (IWC) and Latino Leadership Teams will jointly offer a workshop on nonviolent-intervention strategies on Sunday, October 8, from 1:00 to 4:00 pm in the Nativity Hall.

The bilingual booklet, Respuesta Rápida en Caso de Emergencia, describes five kinds of situations in which St. Michael’s Rapid Responders may be asked to show up should assistance be requested when individuals or families feel unsafe, threatened or at risk because of their immigration status. Workshop participants will learn about nonviolent interventions that can be used to diffuse situations and have an opportunity to witness and practice these interventions in different scenarios outlined in the booklet.
