Safety Workshop

Organized by the Independent Living Resource Center San Francisco for young adults in California with disabilities.

Online via Zoom – Register by Wednesday, January 27 to receive the link

Registration Required – Email Brianna Sendziak at to register. Please include your full name, age, phone number, and any accessibility needs.

Learn skills and strategies to build healthy relationships and also to keep yourself and safe from harm including bullying, harassment, assault, and other violence in the community, on the job, at school, online – everywhere. Skills include how to:

Be and act aware, calm, and confident, in person and also online because awareness can stop most problems before they start 

Set clear, respectful boundaries – and respect others’ boundaries, too! because boundaries support healthy relationships – and also help prevent bullying & abuse 

Use words safely – and protect ourselves from others’ words, in person and online to protect your feelings, think clearly, and make wiser choices 

Identify other adults who can help you prevent, avoid, and solve safety problems because adults of all abilities are safer when they have mentors & others they can turn to for help 

Be persistent & assertive to get help from strangers, service providers, and friends because different problems need different kinds of help – and we all deserve to be safe 

Recognize trouble before it grows – and move away toward safety because leaving, avoiding, and preventing trouble can prevent more dangerous problems 

Be safe in public and with strangers – including online because we each deserve to feel safe on transit, on the sidewalk, at work, out shopping – everywhere. 

If you need disability-related accommodations or would  like to participate to support the safety of someone whose abilities make learning through a Zoom-based class difficult, please let us know when you enroll: Brianna Sendziak,
