Description

To continue our series of bystander intervention workshops, our next comes at a particularly frightening milestone and realization - it has been one year of fighting white supremacy under the Trump administration, and we need to be informed and united more than ever. In the past 12 months, these workshops have enlightened and strengthened community members and truly made an impact. There are discriminatory crimes and hateful attacks in the headlines everyday, and we must remain dedicated to the fight for equality.

This is an event that will hold especially potent and strong material. We urge you to attend this politically charged workshop as we face the crucial issues that stand ahead in our country.

Testimonials from past Bystander Intervention workshops:
"I'm still overwhelmed by the emotion shared in that room and Teressa's enormous generosity, energy and commitment. I'm going to a neighborhood cookout right now and cannot shift my headspace and don't want to. The neighbors will hear about my afternoon. Everyone, no matter their "woke" level, was changed. And everyone will now have a conscious choice(s) to make every day on whether to intervene or not. No excuses."

"I was deeply moved by the workshops' personal and emotional sharing. I appreciate Teressa's activism on behalf of POC in Portland, including children. I plan to become a supporter of Don't Shoot Portland. As a recent arrival to Portland, I am trying to find out what is going on here! It's much worse than I might have expected and yet, it seems, the country in general is not a safe place for many people... Gratitude for those who speak and share."
