Accountability & Mediation Book Club

February 22, 2022 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
One of our commitments to move toward being an increasingly anti-oppressive organization and working toward ending violence together with our communities is to build skills to acknowledge our own harmful impacts, work toward creating boundaries and safety for those harmed, and building opportunities for growth for all involved. We will center these workshops on addressing harm that would not typically be criminalized – and sometimes is not productively dealt with at all in our community and organizational spaces: oppression, microaggression, power-over strategies, and conflict.

Through the spring, the Middle Way House Prevention team is providing workshops and skill-up spaces for community members and individuals from our organization and others in helping and healing professions, as well as individuals who wish to support the interpersonal relationships of members of their communities as peer advocates. These workshops are interactive and will invite you to consider real-life applications and build skills with others in our community. Free and open to all. Questions? Contact
