We Look Out for Each Other: Bystander Intervention Training [Virtual]

Bystander intervention is built on the idea that we all play a role in creating safe public spaces for each other when we see our neighbors and community members facing bias, discrimination, or harassment. The NYC Commission on Human Rights and community partners regularly co-host bystander intervention trainings to provide New Yorkers with the tools and strategies to safely respond when they witness bias incidents and discrimination. Participants leave these trainings equipped with verbal and behavioral de-escalation strategies to non-violently intervene to disrupt hate-violence or hate speech. The trainings explore the meaning of safety and solidarity, and how identity plays a role in the ways we may be targeted and the way we me choose to intervene. The Commission’s training was developed in partnership with the Center of Anti-Violence Education NYC.

This event is hosted by the Marlene Meyerson JCC Manhattan, in partnership with The NYC Commission of Human Rights, Based in Harlem, and Kehillat Harlem.
