Bystander Intervention in Public Spaces

We all have a responsibility to do something when we see harassment happening, but too often we freeze. 

We don’t know what to do. 

Bystander intervention gives us tools to intervene without compromising our own safety.  When we intervene, we don’t just reduce trauma for the person being harassed. We also start to chip away at the culture that allows harassment to be so prevalent. Alone we can’t shift the culture — but together — our actions matter.

With this training, we give you the tools to intervene the next time you witness harassment in public spaces.

Training Description
What will you learn?

We will equip you with the right information on how to be an effective bystander in the midst of public space harassment using our proven 5Ds methodology, our five strategies for intervention.

Then, we will practice so you can leave our training feeling more prepared to successfully and safely intervene.
