Community Defense and Bystander Intervention Training
Sunday, August 19th, 12-2:30pm at Art of War MMA located at 251b W 7th Avenue in Eugene
Off The Waffle and Warrior Sisters are teaming up to offer a community defense training - with waffles! Learn techniques to stand up for your community and combat racist and sexist harassment. From recognizing red flags to de-escalating a conflict, we'll be learning and practicing accessible, real-life tools to make our community safer for everyone. Delicious waffles from Off The Waffle will join donated brunch snacks and coffee from community members and local businesses like Elegant Elephant Baking Company. We'll be sharing food beginning at noon, and the training will begin at 12:30pm.
No experience necessary, beginners welcome! This training is open to men as well. Registration encouraged but not required. Let us know you're coming by filling out the short form below. Everyone is welcome regardless of whether they can donate, but we are requesting a sliding scale $5-$20 donations from those who can afford it.
Warrior Sisters is a nonprofit organization dedicated to making empowerment-based, woman-centered self-defense education accessible to all women, regardless of economic status. Thank you to our host Art of War MMA!
