  • Library Story/Music/Playtime (downtown Providence)
    While the Providence Public Library is undergoing renovations, their awesome children's programs have found a temporary hope at Grace Episcopal Church downtown. This program combines time for play and socialization with a story time that includes movement, songs, finger plays and wonderful children’s literature. * Please Note: Please access all sessions through the CHAPEL STREET door. PPL staff will be available at the door for the first 30 minutes of each session to provide assistance. All sessions are held on the 2nd floor and strollers must be left on the ground level. These sessions are not handicapped accessible.

  • Free Women's Self Defense Training (hosted by Boston Dads Group)
    The backlash against the #MeToo movement is growing and survivors are reeling from the toxic discussion around the Supreme Court nomination. I feel both grateful that there is an increased visibility around women's safety, sexual harassment, and sexual violence and incredibly sad that this has happened, and continues to happen, to so many of my friends. Two years ago, in the wake of an unprecedented election of a known perpetrator of this kind of violence against women, City Dads Groups around the country supported fodada's International Women's Self-Defense Day campaign. Sadly, the need for this training is as necessary now as it was then. We are asking all dads to help us spread the word to the women in their lives. Tell them to REGISTER AHEAD OF TIME AT https://www.fodada.com/2018-international-womens-self-defense-day/ The class is on Saturday, November 17 from 1:30-3:30pm in Boston by South Station. The trainers are from IMPACT Boston, which provides self-defense programs to give people the skills to stay calm and focused in unsafe situations. The training is free and open to women and girls over the age of 14. Transgender women and queer women are encouraged to attend. Childcare is NOT provided. The venue is T accessible. *fodada exists to celebrate, promote and support great dads. Their clothing line funds free programs for dads and families. More at www.fodada.com.
