Overdose Prevention Training

This past year, overdoses have killed more New Yorkers than homicides and car-related accidents combined. These deaths can be prevented by simply administering Narcan, an opiate overdose reversal drug.
The training will cover how to reduce the risk of an overdose as well as how to recognize the signs of an overdose and how to reverse one. All attendees will receive Narcan kits to take home with them.

Please bring a yoga mat if you have one, and we do have some if you need to borrow one for the class. Also bring a journal and something to write with. We will be writing a few times during the class, and if you prefer to sketch or want to do both, that is awesome! Wear comfortable clothing, and feel free to bring a warm or cool drink to keep you hydrated (with a secure lid). All levels are welcome. If you have never done yoga you will be able to participate as well. Namaste.

Rebellious Mourning: The Collective Work of Grief

Join Cindy Milstein, editor of “Rebellious Mourning: The Collective Work of Grief” (AK Press) for reflections on the relation between structural losses, mourning, and resistance. This collection, as Silvia Federici, author of “Caliban and the Witch,” puts it, “uncovers the destruction of life that capitalist development leaves in its trail. But it is also witness to the power of grief as a catalyst to collective resistance.” Cindy will share their thoughts on the themes that weave through the book, striving to create a brave space in which to then facilitate a conversation.

Love’s Not Color Blind: Real Talk from the Intersection of Race and Polyamory

Polyamorous people and communities can appear, at first glance, to be very open and welcoming. In many case, they don’t take the time to get introspective about why they may come across as unfriendly or inaccessible to people of color. Love’s Not Color Blind is a book about what we can do to change that landscape. This book-signing event comes bundled with a personally-driven discussion/Q&A on how race can impact polyamory on both individual and community levels.
