Event description

Description

Most of us have heard of situations where a person gets harassed for the way they look, often for skin color or religious dress. Have you wondered what you would do if you were present when this happened?

Bystander Intervention Training teaches us how to react in an effective way without escalating tension and with respect for the wishes of the person who is being targeted.

We will practice specific de-escalation techniques as a bystander in a variety of scenarios. We will also learn about the principles of nonviolence, and about local efforts to build a stronger community with respect for everyone.

If you believe that we need to stick up for each other, that we are our brother's and sister's keeper, come join us. The training will be given by the Montgomery County Civil Rights Coalition.
