Responding to Hate and Discrimination on the Frontline
March 24

Register here

As a frontline service provider, clients you serve may experience hate, racism and discrimination but how do you recognize it and identify how to best support these community members?

This webinar, for frontline service providers, will provide:

simple tools to help you identify discrimination, racism or hate
know where to document and report.

In order to confront the realities of hate, it is important that helpers in community work to acknowledge the experiences and the hurt that it causes as well as know what we can do to help to ensure people have access to remedy.

Commitment to Action
As we seek to build, repair, and strengthen relationships, we want to ensure we create the space to hear directly from community on their experiences with policing, and ideas moving forward. While we will be attending community led sessions as invited, we will also be hosting a handful of sessions throughout the city.
