20 Hour Street Medic Training
Jan 21 @ 6:00 pm – Jan 23 @ 6:00 pm

THIS TRAINING IS FULL! All future signups will go on a waitlist.

Register for the waitlist here: https://forms.gle/VaFPVMfWubvTUuUT8

If you’ve been wanting to go to protests as a street medic, this is the training you’ve been waiting for!

For over 50 years, the 20 hour has been the “gold standard” of training for anyone who wants to wear a red cross to mark as a street medic at a protest. This training includes 20 hours of interactive instruction and practice. It covers a variety of first aid skills, including assessment, airway, bleeding, musculoskeletal injuries, and common medical conditions. It also includes street medic philosophy, protest medic infrastructure, and communications. Finally, it covers protest-specific injuries such as tear gas, rubber bullets, and sound weapons.

This training is FREE, but we will ask for donations to go toward the space and toward our collective.

No experience needed, but we ask that you commit to attend the full training! Hours are 5:30 to 8:30 Friday evening and 9 am to 6 pm Saturday and Sunday. If you have a healthcare certification that includes trauma & first aid training, contact us to see if you qualify to attend Sunday only for the bridge training.

COVID NOTES:
This training will be held indoors with open doors and windows in a large space. We will require masks and 6′ distancing, except for hands-on skills that require being closer for short periods.

We Shall Overcome: African American Stories from Civil War to Civil Rights
Feb 6 @ 1:00 pm – 2:30 pm

This 75-minute guided tour explores the lives and accomplishments of outstanding and ordinary African Americans in Atlanta.

“We Shall Overcome” became the anthem of the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s, but the origin of the song dates back to antebellum days and a spiritual sung by enslaved people, “No More Auction Block for Me.” This tour explores the lives and accomplishments of outstanding and ordinary African Americans who fought to overcome the effects of slavery and discrimination to help shape the history of Atlanta.
These tours start outside of the Bell Tower Building (at the Visitors Center and Museum Shop) at 1:00 PM. Please arrive a few minutes early to check in with the volunteer at the front desk.
Spaces are extremely limited, so we recommend purchasing your tickets in advance.
