This month the Office for Safe and Healthy Neighborhoods (OSHN) is hosting two events (9/23/23 and 9/26/23) that are free and a great way to get involved.
The One Love Louisville Ambassador Training is a free, in-person training scheduled for September 23rd, 2023. Based off our current lineup of presenters, we will meet from 9:00am-2:00pm at Refuge In Kentucky Church, located at 1716 Prentice Street, 40210, and lunch will be served. We will hear from experts as they cover a range of topics including Firearm Safety, Question Persuade Refer (QPR), Stop the Bleed, and The Public Health Approach to Violence. This training, which has been attended by over 900 people since its inception in 2017, aims to inform participants of individual and collective efforts to reduce violence in Louisville. For many of our participants, this is a gateway to get involved with our office, and our wonderful partner organizations working to curb violence in our community. If you have ever wanted to get plugged in to this work, the Ambassador Training is a great place to start. Click Here To Register. The flyer with the QR code is also attached.
