We're offering a free training day for activists in Salt Lake City, focused on helping the community build resiliency and protect social-and-environmental justice workers. Want to learn how to better cope with the stress of human rights work? Learn how to be a more effective activist? Learn some of the essential things you’d need to do as a street medic to support protestors?
Join us for a series of activist workshops Feb. 3 at the Salt Lake City Art Hub, 663 W 100 S, Salt Lake City, Utah 84104. Featuring classes on self-care, mutual care, street-medic essentials, finding joy, building resiliency for yourself and your work ... along with other essential tools for maximizing your impact & protecting yourself & others.
This is a great time to step up your skill level in nonviolent civil resistance and wellness care, with groups around the U.S. organizing to counter threats against the integrity and beauty of Bears Ears and Grand Escalante monuments in southern Utah.
Cost? None. It's free, but donations are appreciated. Please bring a yoga mat or pillow to help make yourself comfortable in the training space. The event is located near a Trax station.
Brought to you by coordinator Nina Giardinelli, assisted by Jenny Baird and Taggart Long, training director for Frontline Wellness United.
Opening and closing ceremonies will be led by PANDOS, Peaceful Advocates for Native Dialogue and Organizing Support.
