About this event
The Little Compton Coalition for Racial Justice and True Story Theater present, Taking Action: A Skills-based Intervention Training for Combating Injustice
Saturday, May 22, 2021
10 AM-12:30 PM EST
Join the Little Compton Coalition for Racial Justice for our second FREE and PUBLIC training on being an active bystander. This interactive training will build off of our first educational event in November, which explored why we often struggle to intervene in situations of harm and injustice. Our upcoming training with True Story Theater on May 22nd invites attendees to participate in action-oriented role play and improvisation to work through challenging scenarios based on real life, so that we can be prepared with the skills to intervene in the moment. While Little Compton feels like a safe haven for many people, we have much work to do in order to make our town feel safer and more welcoming to all people, particularly people of color. We believe that by equipping ourselves with the tools to confront racism and other forms of bigotry head on, we can begin to build a Little Compton that is more inclusive, diverse, and racially just.
Space is limited to 90 participants. Save your spot by registering today!
We believe that this opportunity for skill building should be accessible to all people, regardless of their ability to pay. That’s why we are offering this training for free!
If you are in a position to make the suggested donation of $10 or more, you can help fund this training and future social justice events for the Little Compton community!
