      • Partners for Change, Wednesdays, 6:00 pm, United Christian Church, 1886 College Ave., Livermore. This program makes it possible for struggling families to enjoy dinner (6:00 p.m.) and for heads of household to network and learn about community resources (7:00 p.m.), while their children are in childcare or getting help with homework. Also called “Circles,”this is a program initiated by Asbury United Methodist Church in Livermore, modeled after a national project that brings families in poverty into personal relationship with “allies” from churches and other community groups. Sign up with Shana at director@pfctv.org to help by being a partner with folks working to move beyond poverty.
      • Bystander Intervention Training, August 18, 7:00-9:00 pm, Muslim Community Center of the East Bay, 5724 West Las Positas Boulevard #300, Pleasanton. Many Muslims and allies have been asking about the role bystanders can play in protecting targets of hate crimes since the election. The recent tragedy in Portland, where two heroes were killed while protecting two women who were being attacked, has really brought that question to the forefront again. You are invited to attend the Bystander Intervention training. Register at mcceb.org/bystander-1. If you cannot attend the Aug. 18 training, there is a second training on Sunday, Aug. 20, and you can register for it here.
