From Margin To Center: Active By-Stander Intervention Training Wed., April 12

Join Student Life for the “From Margin to Center” program series with this training that will provide strategies to intervene in hostile/violent contexts. Wed., April 12 1:30-3 p.m. in the PUB 9208.

Tolu Taiwo and Luke Ruiz bring this training to talk about ways to be active bystanders while considering positionality and identities. This training prepares each member of the Shoreline Community College community to be active bystanders and look out for one another in order to create a safer community for all. We care about our friends – this presentation provides an overview of warning signs and skills for response when they are at risk.

Tolu Taiwo and Luke Ruiz both work at Pacific Lutheran University. Tolu serves as the Prevention and Outreach Coordinator for the Center for Gender Equity at Pacific Lutheran University, has served in an array of roles advocating for those in marginalized communities, and was recently selected as a faculty member at NASPA’s Dungy Leadership Institute. Luke Ruiz is a Resident Director for two upper division residential communities and his work crosses over with a number of offices, especially the Center for Gender Equity, where he has been involved in Active Bystander Training for the past couple of years and strongly believes in speaking up and out against injustices in our society.
