Bystander Intervention Training to Stop Anti-Asian/American and Xenophobic Harassment
April 20 @ 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm
Anti-Asian/American and xenophobic harassment are on the rise across the US — and the world. Please join this virtual Zoom workshop sponsored by Asian Americans Advancing Justice Chicago, Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) Chicago, and Hollaback!, where you’ll learn how you can intervene effectively as a bystander without compromising your safety.
This one-hour, interactive training on April 20, will teach you Hollaback!’s 5D’s of bystander intervention methodology. We’ll start by talking about the types of discrimination that Asian and Asian American folks are facing right now – from microaggressions to violence. You’ll then 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. At the end of our practice scenarios, and you’ll leave feeling more confident intervening the next time you see Anti-Asian/American harassment.
