  • Aug 1st 7:00pm–9:00pm

    Many Muslims and allies have been asking about the role bystanders can play in protecting targets of hate crimes since the election. The recent tragedy in Portland, where two heroes were killed while protecting two women who were being attacked, has really brought that question to the forefront again. Join us for a bystander intervenion training. Sponsored by CAIR-SFBA and Muslim Community Association.
