co-Hosted by: LeaderShift and Mount Seymour United Church

May 18th at Mount Seymour in North Vancouver, 6 – 9 pm. Registration: , Cost: $5 with dinner

Want to take a stand against hate and intolerance?

Challenging Islamophobia, homophobia, racism and other acts of division means being willing to speak up and break the silence. But when faced with it in our own lives, sometimes we don’t know what to do.

Join us in developing the skills, language, and confidence through this hands-on training that will help you find ways that work for you to intervene and take action!  Learn simple ways to de-escalate tense situations and to support vulnerable people. Led by skilled anti-racism facilitators, this training is open to congregations, community organizations, non-profits or just caring individuals who want to lovingly stand up!

Trainers Angela Brown and Natasha Aruliah will share skills and techniques in a fun and supportive environment.

Angela Brown is an Education Consultant on Anti-racism, Diversity, Equity and Social Justice. She is an Anti-racism and Diversity Mentor at the Vancouver Board of Education and a Faculty Associate at SFU.

Natasha Aruliah is a facilitator, consultant, educator and coach, specialising in diversity, equity, inclusion, social justice and transformative change, with over 25 years of experience. She is on faculty at the Centre for Intercultural Studies at the University of British Columbia, the Justice Institute of BC, and is a founding faculty member of the Inner activist, a leadership program for social change agents.
