“Reports of harassment are on the rise everywhere – including Tucson. Come learn how to respond when you experience harassment yourself or see it happening to someone else. Get tips on how to respond to friends, family and coworkers when they say or do things that show prejudice. Help us launch a citywide network to make Tucson a safe place for everyone!
Who should come? Private citizens, business owners, nonprofit and faith leaders, law enforcement officers and government officials – and everyone who wants to build alliances across impacted groups and their allies.
This event is FREE. It will be practical and inspiring. YOU make the difference. Join us!
We Stand Together is a campaign to speak up for our neighbors and stand up against bigotry and prejudice. Sponsored by Southern Arizona Hate Crimes Task Force, YWCA Southern Arizona and Jewish History Museum, Women’s Resource Center (UA), Southern Arizona AIDS Foundation.”
