Event description

Description

Over the past year, we have seen an alarming increase in hate crimes and attacks against immigrant, Muslim, LGBTQ+, and other vulnerable populations in our communities, as well as across the country. Have you asked yourself, “What could I have done if I were there?” Have you witnessed someone being harassed, but were stifled or frozen by fear and didn’t know what to do?

The good news is that there are lifelong skills and techniques that you can learn and practice to keep each other safe. Our 4 hour Basic Bystander Training will show you how to respond. Experienced and certified facilitators will teach you the basic tactics you can use to deescalate and/or redirect threats and harassment through non-violent methods and strategies.

Past participant testimonials:

“Really appreciated the sense of safety and affirmation that was created. Great environment for dialog and exploring these challenging topics.”

“Loved it! Thank you for making us think about where we stand on complex situations!”

“So many seeds planted.”

Not only will you learn more about non-violence, but also how to be an active listener and to understand that we have more in common than we have differences. When we can come together with an open heart, the better we can help one another.

Pre-registration is required.
