  • What: Trolls are increasingly moving from online to in-person, with provocateurs showing up with video cameras and attempting to provoke a reaction. At our November monthly meeting, we will share an example from a recent rally in Ventura and talk more about this growing phenomenon and how to respond. We will use role plays to practice simple tools for de-escalating the situation and not giving the trolls what they want.
  • When: * If this is your first meeting, please come at 6:30 PM for an orientation and welcome to Showing Up for Racial Justice (SURJ). Otherwise, the meeting starts at 7 PM.
  • Where: Ventura Vineyard, 1956 Palma Dr., Ste. A, Ventura
