At a time when many of us are finding ourselves called to the streets, it's wise to arrive prepared. Join Rosehip Medic Collective for this workshop, where we'll discuss ways to prepare yourself for the next demonstration, occupation, or whatever else may be on the horizon. We cover everything from warm layers (no cotton!) to jail support and the proper treatments for pepperspray. Free and open to all.
About the Rosehip Medic Collective
The Rosehip Medic Collective is a group of volunteer Street Medics and health care activists active in Portland, Oregon. We provide first aid and emergency care at protests, direct actions, and other sites of resistance and struggle. We also train other street medics and put on community wellness trainings. We believe in democratizing health care knowledge and skills, in reducing our community’s dependence on corporate medicine, and that strong networks of support and care are essential to building a sustainable, long-term movement for collective liberation. We are working to create one facet of the healthy and diverse infrastructure we see as necessary if we are to build another world. Our group includes EMTs, nurses, Wilderness First Responders, herbalists, teachers. and more. Find out more about what they're up to on their website.
