“A threat is any potential event that could cause harm to ourselves or our work.- Holistic Security guide

Threats are a real and ever-present aspect of the world we navigate. Whether they occur due to our acitivities, or just from trying to navigate through our days, the feelings that we develop from feeling threatened have a very concrete impact on our lives. The purpose of this presentation is to present exercises that can aid in reducing anxiety surrounding our feelings of threat, and can help you or the org you are a part of create a space for members to share threats, and evaluate them for likelihood, rather than just becoming paranoid by them

This presentation will take place at the 2017 NYC Anarchist Book Fair, Art, Film and Music Festivals at Judson Memorial Church - New York City in the Garden Room.
