Activist Workshop: Bystander Intervention Training
Community Rise Up: Bystander Intervention Training with Hollaback!
Have you or a friend ever been a bystander to harassment? Do you want to learn more about effective bystander strategies and how to implement them? NOW-NYC is proud to be a sponsor of this BYSTANDER INTERVENTION TRAINING with Hollaback!
According to Hollaback research, a small act like a knowing glance can reduce trauma in the face of harassment, but the wrong response can actually increase trauma. This training will provide you with the necessary strategies, tips, and tools, including engagement of Hollaback’s 5 D’s of Bystander Intervention℠, to assess your environment and take necessary action.
With hate crimes on the rise, we need to be equipped with the right information on how to be an effective bystander in our communities. In this workshop, Hollaback will provide you with the tools you need to stand up for the rights of everyone.
