Thursday, September 10th, 7-8:30pm: Neighbors Together
Neighbors Together is about connecting neighbors with an emphasis on community building. Neighbors Together activates multiple collaborative and creative solutions to community safety. This training supports neighbors to work with each other, with the City, and with community to better address a range of public safety considerations such as active transportation, emergency preparedness, personal safety, community advocacy, youth safety, and more.

Personal Safety: This training is very interactive. It is adapted from the WomenStrength curriculum (a Portland Police Bureau Program), but it is open to people of all gender identities, not just those who identify as women.
