Bystander Intervention Training

On August 16, 2017 from 2:30 pm - 4:30 pm, the Human Services Council, in partnership with Hollaback! and the New York City Anti-Violence Project, is offering a training on Bystander Intervention. In the wake of the 2016 presidential election, we've seen how the rise in harassment and violence in the U.S. is impacting our communities. We have also seen a desire to rise up, speak out, and intervene when harassment is happening. This training will show participants how to do their part to protect community members when bigotry and harassment collide in front of them. Conducted by Hollaback!'s Deputy Director, Debjani Roy, and Anti-Violence Project's Senior Manager of Organizing and Advocacy, Yasmin Safdié, this training will arm participants with the tools to respond to harassment and protect the rights of everyone. Register to attend.
