Training Information
What will you learn?

Hate-based harassment has been on the rise in the US and the world. In this virtual workshop hosted on Zoom, we’ll learn how you can intervene effectively as a bystander without ever compromising your safety.

This 90 minute interactive training will teach you the 5Ds of bystander intervention methodology. We’ll start by talking about the types of disrespect that many folks across all identities are facing right now — from microaggressions to violence — using a tool we call the, “Spectrum of Disrespect.” You’ll learn what to look for and the positive impact that bystander intervention has on individuals and communities. We’ll talk through five strategies for intervention: distract, delegate, document, delay, and direct; and how to prioritize your own safety while intervening. We’ll have time at the end for practice, and you’ll leave feeling more confident intervening the next time you see hate-based harassment online or in person.
