Have you visited the forest, lately? It’s a beautiful time in Lincoln Park and also time to protect our urban forest and remove invasive plants! See you in the park!

• Register here: https://seattle.greencitypartnerships.org/event/15157/

• Sunday July 21, 9 am to noon.

• Meet near the NORTH parking lot Kiosk (Fauntleroy Way SW & SW Rose St). If you miss us at 9am, check the kiosk map to see where we’re working or call Sharon at 206.464.1068.

• Dress in NW layers to stay warm/cool and dry. We suggest long sleeves and pants year-round to protect from scratches and a water bottle to keep hydrated. Wear closed toe, sturdy shoes or boots. Bring garden gloves and your favorite tool, if you have them. We will have extra tools and gloves to borrow.

The fabulous and fun FLiP (Friends of Lincoln Park) crew meets the first Saturday and third Sunday of each month. Temps are warming and rain never stops us, but if there are high wind warnings, it’s not safe to be in the woods and we’ll need to cancel.

Bystander Intervention Workshop @ Admiral Congregational Church
Sep 15 @ 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Anti-Hate Alaska Junction works to reduce hate in our neighborhood by providing Bystander Intervention Workshops.

Visit our website at www.antihatealaskajunction.wordpress.com for information about hate in Seattle and in the US.

In this session, the bystander intervention workshop leader reviews brain science–including the reality of emotional responses, their effect on brain chemistry, and the resulting triggering of our fight/flight/freeze survival responses.

Participants apply new knowledge and practice new skills by running scenarios of hate-based interactions with the goals of de-escalating the situations and supporting the target. Working as an aggressor, a target, or an intervening bystander, participants learn by doing, not by listening.

The next workshop is Sunday, September 15, 2019, from 2 to 4 pm at Admiral Congregational Church, 4320 SW Hill Street, Seattle. There will also be an opportunity to have an extra practice session on Sunday, October 6.

The workshop is FREE, but donations are accepted.  To register, email antihate3@gmail.com or just walk in.
