Description

Teens and adults are invited to participate in an upcoming series of community conversations hosted by the City of Mercer Island and One Mercer Island (One MI). This program was developed by One MI and Do the Work MI, two community groups committed to inclusivity and supporting families of color on Mercer Island. The second conversation in the series is intended for adults and provides tangible tools to be an effective ally.

Event description from Let’s Talk Mercer Island webpage:

We all have a responsibility to do something when we see street harassment happening, but too often we freeze. We don’t know what to do. Learning how to be an ally in the face of harassment gives us tools to intervene without compromising our own safety. When we intervene, we don’t just reduce trauma for the person being harassed. We also start to chip away at the culture that allows harassment to be so prevalent. Alone we can’t shift the culture — but together — our actions matter. In this training, our goal is to give participants the tools to safely and confidently intervene the next time they witness harassment in public spaces. This session is geared toward adults.
