What will you learn?
Respond in a safe and empowering way

How can we take action if we don’t know what to do? Right To Be is offering this free, one-hour, interactive training to train people on how to safely intervene when you witness street harassment — or experience it yourself.

During this training you’ll learn a clear, adaptable, and expert-approved set of tools that have been proven to reduce the prevalence of street harassment: Right To Be’s 5Ds of bystander intervention.

We’ll start by deepening our understanding of street harassment and its impact. Then, 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 also talk about what to do if you’re worried the violence will turn on you and how to avoid escalating the situation.

Then, we’ll talk about what to do if you experience harassment and give you tools to safely get your power back. We’ll have time at the end for practice. Exit polls show 98.8% of attendees leave the training feeling like there is at least one thing they can do the next time they witness harassment.

This training addresses various real-life scenarios and how to approach them with a toolbox of techniques. It’s informative and empowering– I feel prepared to go out and help people in need.

Partners in the movement
Asian Americans Advancing Justice | AAJC

In response to the rise in Anti-Asian/American and Xenophobic Harassment, Right To Be partnered with Asian Americans Advancing Justice | AAJC to adapt our free training to support the Asian/American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) community. 

The Asian Americans Advancing Justice affiliation | AAJC has been documenting stories of anti-Asian hate crimes and hate incidents since 2017 at www.StandAgainstHatred.org, which is available in English, Chinese, Korean, and Vietnamese. 

To address the rising number of anti-Asian hate crimes and offer training to communities nationwide, we are now also partnered with Asian Americans Advancing Justice | Asian Law Caucus, Asian Americans Advancing Justice Chicago, and Asian Americans Advancing Justice Los Angeles.
