The Porch Chats series is an initiative to promote dialogue in a relaxed, constructive and welcoming environment that helps people to understand their neighbours and overcome barriers and myths preventing them from the creation of more connected communities.
This year we went virtual. We hosted 4 Porch Chats in Summer 2020 and are hosting another 4 in November and Dec. 2020. One of the benefits of virtual porch chats are that we aren't constrained by weather.
All 2020 Porch Chats follow #KeepFamiliesSafe themes
2 were recorded:
- Emotional Abuse and Precursors to Violence in the Home
- Impact of Trauma and Abuse on Children
- Conflict in Families
- Becoming An Active Bystander
