Bystander Intervention to Stop Harassment Toward the LGBTQIA+ Community

Harassment toward the LGBTQIA+ community is unacceptable, yet it is still prevalent and affecting those most vulnerable. In response to this persistent problem, we created training to address the complicated issues the LGBTQIA+ community faces.

Join us and start your journey to better support the LGBTQIA+ community.

Training Description
What will you learn?

Right To Be is offering a free, one-hour, interactive training to train people on how to safely intervene when they witness anti-LGBTQIA+ harassment in public using the 5D’s of bystander intervention.

 

We’ll start by talking about the types of disrespect that LGBTQIA+ folks 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 anti-LGBTQIA+ harassment.
