Postcard Party: Recovery is Good Policy

Date: 
Wed, Oct 25, 2017 - 7:00pm to 10:00pm

City:

Ensuring people have access to the resources they need to get into recovery and stay in recovery is key to having a healthy community. It just makes sense. One of the key barriers to a robust recovery community is the stigma that comes with addiction. Leadership in reducing stigma needs to come from the top. We are joining with "Faces & Voices of Recovery" in their efforts urging our national institutions to remove the word "abuse" from their names. Learn more about this campaign here:

Community Organizing: Direct Action Training!

Sat, Oct 28, 2017 - 12:00pm to 4:00pm

City:

Are you new to activism but want to get involved? Do you have experience in activism but want to build further on your efforts?

Direct action is an important tool in building a movement that will actually win. From suffragettes and sit-down strikes, to the civil rights movement, to ActUp and Occupy, direct actions have helped propel social movements to success.

This training is provided by Michigan People's Campaign and will focus on how to create and conduct effective direct actions, safely and peacefully, in support of making change.

Bystander Intervention Training - Ypsilanti

Sat, Oct 21, 2017 - 1:00pm to 5:00pm

City:

As we see an increase in hate crimes and attacks against immigrants, Muslims, and other vulnerable populations in our communities, many of us have asked ourselves, “What would or what could I do if I were there?” The good news is that there are skills and techniques that you can learn and practice to keep others safe. You don’t have to be passive. Our 4 hour Basic Bystander Training will show you how to respond.
