16 Days of Activism Community Workshop (Dawson City)

December 6, 2023 | 1:00 pm - December 7, 2023 | 4:00 pm

For 16 Days of Activism to End Gender-Based Violence, Dawson Women’s Shelter is offering two three-hour workshops for community members.

ABOUT THE WORKSHOPS
IT’S NOT JUST PHYSICAL

Many folks want to help someone who is being abused, but don’t know what to look for. Learn to recognize the signs of an abusive relationship and to think about gender-based violence past what we’re taught in movies and TV.

When: Wednesday, December 6th from 1-4pm

HELPING A FRIEND

It’s scary to think about our friends, relations, neighbours, classmates, and coworkers, being in danger or being hurt, but sadly we can’t choose who experiences violence and coercion. Learn skills to listen to survivors and offer helpful resources.

When: Thursday, December 7th from 1-4pm

BOTH WORKSHOPS ARE:

  • Like first aid, essential skills we hope we don’t have to use

  • Participatory learning, but not a support group. Folks looking for support can connect with DWS and other Yukon & National resources – https://www.dawsonwomensshelter.com/dawson-resources

  • FREE!

  • Include snacks and some pretty awesome doorprizes!

  • In-person!
