Saturday May 27, 10:00am – 12:30pm

Community Building Lobby, 35 W. Main

This is a great workshop on nonviolent de-escalation skills for protesters, organizers, and folks thinking of volunteering as peacekeepers for any social justice cause! Come learn how trained peacekeepers can help create a successful event for social justice and peace. We’ll cover nonviolence principles and guidelines, techniques to defuse and de-escalate potentially volatile situations, and how to organize a team of peacekeepers. And, we’ll practice so we are more likely to use these new skills in real life!

Successfully completing this training makes you eligible to join the PJALS Peacekeeper Team for Spokane’s Pride celebration on June 10 or for other future events, but there is NO obligation.

There is no cost to attend; there will be an opportunity give an optional donation.
