Connect in Place: Emerging from Our Homes

How we experience safety and vulnerability moving through our communities

June 1, 2021 | 5:00 p.m. | Virtual Event

Online, everywhere in OR and beyond

For most, the pandemic meant spending more time in our homes. As we emerge from our homes, our sense of safety and vulnerability moving through our communities may be different if we are walking, biking, rolling, taking public transit, or driving. Join facilitator LeeAnn O’Neill in this conversation that asks, How does the way you move through your community affect your sense of safety and vulnerability? What else affects your sense of safety and vulnerability? How might you change the way you interact with others as you move through your community to create a greater sense of safety for everyone? This conversation is a chance to reflect on our collective roles in creating greater safety for all as we move through our communities.

RSVP for this conversation.

LeeAnn O’Neill is a founding partner of Allyship in Action, a collaborative of equity and social justice consultants based in Central Oregon, and the board president of Bend Bikes, a grassroots advocacy organization dedicated to the safety of people who ride bikes. LeeAnn is a queer Asian American woman who has relied on moving through her communities primarily by walking, biking, and taking public transit and only recently by driving.
