Bystander Intervention to Support the LGBTQIA+ Community

Time: 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm EST
Hosted by: Right To Be
Training Information
What will you learn?

This one-hour, interactive training will teach you the 5Ds of bystander intervention methodology and how these strategies can be used to support the LGBTQIA+ community.

We’ll start by talking about the types of disrespect that LGBTQIA+ folx are facing right now — including stigma, discrimination, and harassment stemming from misinformation about the current monkeypox outbreak in the U.S. — 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 anti-LGBTQIA+ harassment.
