[Sigh] Sign of the times when teachers are taking Active Shooter Training instead of Continuing Education Training? [eye roll] But better to understand – and TAKE A STAND – than bury our heads in the sand as we continue to bury more victims of mass shootings. A crucial and complementary local event open to the public, “Understanding the Dynamics of an Active Shooter Incident” is being hosted by SLOPD April 23. Complete with class participation [gulp], the 2-hour event is part of the newish PEACE program. Where: French Hospital’s Copeland Pavilion. When: April 23, 5:30-7:30pm. Space is limited, RSVP here.
Other ways to not feel wholly hopeless-slash-helpless? March and rally this Saturday in solidarity with the national March in DC at SLO’s March for Our Lives, demanding Congress commit to real solutions for mass shootings. Starting at 2 pm D-Town at Mitchell Park. RSVP to March. Donate. Volunteer. Write letters. Do. Something! #ready.set.go
