First aid is the initial intervention administered to a person suffering from a sudden illness, attack, or injury, before professional medical help is available. The purpose of this First Aid Workshop is to discuss and demonstrate emergency skills to preserve life, prevent worsening or deterioration of a situation, and to promote recovery. This workshop does not provide management of activist-specific injuries or scenes control and does not lead to First-Aid CPR certification.
As we continue to organize and fight for liberation from all the systems of oppressions that marginalizes us- there are 2 big questions that our communities have to work on: HOW DO WE ADDRESS VIOLENCE WITHIN OUR COMMUNITIES? HOW DO WE HOLD THOSE ACCOUNTABLE THAT HAVE CAUSED HARM WITHOUT PUNITIVE ACTION? Join us February 5th, 6:30pm at the Brooklyn ALP office- 85 South Oxford St, Basement floor- as we discuss Transformative Justice and we how we can collectively apply it effectively in our communities. Food and metrocards will be provided.
