With schools and many employers reopening in the fall, we want to equip all Asian Americans with the tools they need to keep themselves and each other safe.
In 2021, Asian New Yorkers have experienced more attacks in the first six months alone than in all of 2020. The data shows that verbal and physical assaults continue unabated, with many community members feeling scared to go outside
The Asian American Federation is partnering with Nonviolent Peaceforce to provide a VIRTUAL workshop on situational awareness on Thursday, September 21, from 7-8:30 pm ET. Participants will learn how to use a situational awareness tool when faced with an anti-Asian attack so they can assess themselves and their surroundings before responding in a way that creates the most safety for themselves and others.
Location: Online (Zoom link will be sent after registration)
Access: The training will be in English, and we will provide closed captioning in English.
