About Protecting Yourself Physically and Emotionally in Trying Times

Protecting Yourself Physically and Emotionally in Trying Times

Recent events have made personal safety an issue of importance for everyone, but especially for Women of Color. Have you ever felt frightened or intimidated when out walking alone? Wondered what you should do if approached by an attacker? Worried about becoming yet another home invasion statistic? Women need not view themselves as helpless victims.

Join our speaker panel for a discussion focusing on identifying personal risks; assessing situations for elements of danger; and exploring options for dealing with the threat of violence. Learn how women can develop a sense of empowerment through emotional and physical safety by connecting with resources in our community.

About Race Talks: Opportunities for Dialogue

Race Talks: Opportunities for Dialogue

This series deals with race in Oregon, both historically and up to the present time, to provide learning experiences that support the development of racial identity and sensitivity.

Each month, Kennedy School hosts a presentation on a different topic of ethnicity and racial elements in Oregon history, given by educators and/or experts in the topic at hand. The aim is to provide educational and learning experiences that support the development of intercultural sensitivity and racial identity.
