Hate-based harassment has been on the rise in the U.S. and the world. In this virtual workshop hosted on Zoom, we’ll learn how you can intervene effectively as a bystander without ever compromising your safety.

This 1.5 hour, interactive training will teach you Hollaback!’s 5D’s of bystander intervention methodology. We’ll start by talking about the types of disrespect that many folks across all identities 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 hate-based harassment online or in person.
