Bystander Intervention Training
Stephanie Roades of SURJ MKE (Showing Up For Racial Justice) will lead a workshop on bystander intervention to interrupt discriminatory acts.
Bystander Intervention training will focus on ways to intervene in public instances of racist, sexist, anti-Muslim, anti-Semitic, anti-Trans, anti-immigrant and other forms of oppressive interpersonal violence and harassment, while considering the safety of all parties. The physical and vocal practice of various strategies is designed to change social norms and encourage people to find ways to interrupt violence and prevent further harm.
This workshop includes a learning segment of tips and strategies, how to document, film the police, knowing your rights as an intervener, and practice scenarios constructed on ways to show up and support a diversity of indentities through an intersectional lens, both as the intervener and the person experiencing harm.
The workshop is FREE and open to the public, donations are accepted and encouraged! Refreshments will be provided.
