Join us for book reviews, professional development, networking, and inspiration.
ACL Meeting Friday, October 8, 2021: Please join us for our ACL Meeting on Friday, October 8, 2021, from 10:00am-Noon over Zoom. We will have our usual Book Reviewing and Outstanding Books discussion.
The professional development segment this month will be provided by the Council on American-Islamic Relations. The recent rise in hate crimes and hate incidents has led the Council on American-Islamic Relations to offer this training to help communities prepare to step in when they see these incidents. Bystander Intervention Training teaches bystanders about the principles of nonviolence and de-escalation techniques. In this training participants learn hands-on skills about how to de-escalate a hate incident before it leads to violence, how to create a safe space, and how to support the person being targeted.
The Zoom link will be sent to ACL members later this week. Questions? Need the link? Email us at [email protected]
