Parkdale Community Safety Workshops

Parkdale People's EconomyGeneral

The Parkdale Women’s Leadership Group and the Community Safety Committee for Mutual Aid Parkdale are collaborating to provide a series of workshops on Community Safety and Wellness every Monday from 6-8PM throughout February and March 2021. 

With the second wave of COVID-19 underway and sustained movements for racial justice and defunding the police, we have been hearing growing calls from community members to skill up and offer new forms of care and support in moments of crisis that do not rely on the police. We offered the following trainings with local facilitators to build community solidarity and learning:

  • Navigating Crisis
  • Mental Health and Wellness
  • Harm Reduction
  • Suicide Prevention
  • Conflict Resolution
  • Supporting Survivors of Sexual Violence 
  • Self Defense
  • Transformative Justice 
  • Community Healing

MONDAY EVENINGS FROM 6-8PM | FEB 1, 2021 – MAR 29, 2021

Please see below for the recordings and resources from our workshops:
