About this event

The Centre for Newcomers (CFN), in collaboration with Immigrant Services Calgary (ISC) and The Immigrant Educational Society (TIES), will be conducting Empowerment Talks and Self-Defence Classes. The sessions are meant to:

• Address issues of racism, xenophobia, and discrimination

• Teach clients how to respond to bullying and racism

• Be a total of 3 hours in length overall

This workshop is intended to teach empowerment and self-defence skills to people who have been or potentially could be impacted by racialized, xenophobic, or other discriminatory scenarios. An empowerment talk will be followed by an in-person concrete training of self-defence skills. The workshop will be facilitated in 3 hours for the two sessions.
