As of March 13, 2020, we have suspended all in-person workshops until further notice, to reduce the threat to community health posed by COVID-19. Our workshops with a major focus on violence, including No Means No, TrendShift, and Only Yes Means Yes, are not being offered remotely due to concern for the safety and well-being of learners who may be isolated in an unsafe home environment. We are working on gradually increasing the content from these workshops that is available on our website for self-directed learning. Our other workshops, including Youth in the Workplace and PowerPlay, continue to be offered remotely via Zoom.
One of the best ways to protect Charter and human rights is to educate people on how to use them. West Coast LEAF’s public legal education program encourages people to think critically about the law and society, and to understand and exercise their legal rights. We offer workshops on legal tools and strategies, financial issues in the family law context, consent & sexual assault, youth rights in the workplace, and youth rights online.
