BYSTANDER INTERVENTION TRAINING

Whether on the street, at school, or in the park, chances are you have witnessed someone being targeted by another person with harsh or degrading language. The spark can be as simple as skin color or a head covering.  On Thursday, Feb. 23, 6:30-8 PM in Fellowship Hall, we'll host a free workshop for the entire community to learn when and how to take action that defuses such situations and helps re-center us all on positive social norms.  Rev. Andrew Conley-Holcom, pastor at Admiral UCC, will walk us through practical, safe strategies for intervening directly, distracting those involved, and soliciting support from others.  Please let the church office know you're coming (206-932-5600) or jackie@fauntleroyucc.org).  Judy Pickens
