Interrupting Hate in Schools

Starts: October 17, 2018 9:00 am | Ends: October 17, 2018 4:00 pm

In this training, we will discuss the ramifications of hate in school settings and offer tools to address and interrupt when hate is occurring.

We will explore how -ism’s are created, demonstrated, and perpetuated in educational institutions and discuss what can be done to counteract and prevent harm. We will demonstrate strategies to interrupt hate that arises in our everyday interactions. We will also discuss how to productively engage situations while being mindful of safety issues and centering the needs of the people being targeted.

Stephen FowlerStephen Fowler is an activist, justice advocate, community educator, and performing artist from Portland Oregon. Convicted as a teenager, sentenced to 7.5 years in the Oregon Youth Authority, Stephen used his time to educate and expand his understanding of self-worth, potential, and purpose using art forms. Stephen is now committed to educating organizations, school districts, community members, teachers, parents, and students about the radical practice of restorative justice for collective liberation. Stephen is a Consultant, Mediator, co-founder of Verbal Escape, an employee of Resolutions Northwest, Race Talks Facilitator, and resource council member for Morpheus Youth Projects.

Maria ScanelliMaria’s passion for ending cycles of harm began as a young child. She saw how individuals, families, communities and systems repeat unlearned and unhealed lessons, which leads to cycles of harm. Life led her to Restorative Justice (RJ) and the philosophy has become a way of life more than a job. Maria has been a volunteer for the Dept. of Corrections and the Oregon Youth Authority since 2008 as a Restorative Justice Group Facilitator and as a Dialogue Facilitator for serious and violent harms. She completed her MS in Conflict Resolution from Portland State University in 2008 and joined Resolutions Northwest in 2011. She has taught college and high school classes in RJ and has been a trainer, dialogue and circle facilitator for youth, families, adults and organizations for over 12 years. She most appreciates the constant learning, unlearning and relationship building that is essential to dismantling the sticky webs of oppression. “You can’t be neutral on a moving train.” Howard Zinn
