Four people holding each others waist at daytime
Bystander Intervention to Support Trans* Equality
Date: June 17, 2024
Time: 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm EST
Hosted by: Right To Be
Training Information
What will you learn?

This one-hour, interactive training will teach you Right To Be’s 5Ds of bystander intervention methodology. We’ll start by talking about identities that fall under the trans* umbrella and the types of disrespect that trans* folks are facing right now —  from microaggressions to violence —  using a tool we call the “spectrum of disrespect.” You’ll also learn a little bit about the impacts of disrespect and harassment on trans* identifying folks and the positive impact that intervention can have. We’ll talk through five strategies for intervention: distract, delegate, document, delay, and direct; and how to prioritize your own safety while intervening.

Finally, we’ll practice intervening with a series of scenarios and close with a brief visioning exercise, so you leave feeling more confident intervening the next time you see transphobic harassment online or in person.
