The Southern Poverty Law Center released a report documenting 900 cases of “Harassment and Intimidation” during the first ten days following the November 2016 election. Most of the incidents took place in school settings. The actual number is higher, and it keeps increasing. Oregon finds itself on top of the list in numbers of occurrences relative to our population. The data is matched by stories we hear from local schools. The question is: What can we do?

Learn about resources for preventative and relationship-building activities in schools. Familiarize yourself with tools that can be taught to youth who are targets, as well as to those who are bystanders. Participate in a discussion on possible restorative responses to hold youth who initiate the harassment accountable. 

Co-sponsored by Resolutions Northwest and Unite Oregon.

Support: This workshop is offered at no cost. Any donations received will support the work of Resolutions Northwest in our community to provide mediation, facilitation, training, and restorative justice services. DONATE
