In collaboration with the Oregon Peace Institute, Immigrant and Refugee Community Organization will lead a three-hour introductory Bystander Intervention Training to help community members address issues that many people in Portland’s diverse community are facing. The workshop will take place from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. at IRCO's Sokhom Tauch Community Center, 10301 NE Glisan St.
Participants will learn how to de-escalate situations using proven methods that give support to individuals being targeted by hate, oppression, and even violence.
If you do not know what to do when you see others being targeted, or you are being targeted yourself, this will be an opportunity to learn strategies and share ideas.
