Gathering for Peace @ The Salvation Army
Aug 17 @ 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm

Come together as a community to be people of peace in a hurting world. This Saturday, August 17th 6 pm at The Salvation Army, 9050 16th Ave SW.

Violence is unacceptable. Racism and discrimination are ugly aspects of this world that need to be fought against.

We won’t be silent in the light of recent shootings. We don’t have to wait for our elected officials to make change, because the change can start with us right now.

Let’s come together as a community to start the change now.

Some of us need to grieve, some of us need a safe place to share our stories, some of us need an extra dose of hope, and all of us need to generate ideas for how we can move forward offering dignity and respect to all of those in our sphere of influence.

You are invited to come to The Salvation Army Community Center on Saturday August 17 at 6 pm, in a safe space for a meeting of peace, sharing, and visioning for the future.

We are a faith based movement, but no specific spiritual affiliation required. We are all united. All races, religions, beliefs, orientations, and identifications are welcome. We need everyone to make real lasting peace happen. No exclusions. You’re invited and you belong.

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.
