Join us for a FREE bilingual community training on Bystander Intervention to Address Gender-based Harassment, presented by Right To Be (formerly Hollaback!).
During this training, you’ll learn a clear, adaptable, and expert-approved set of tools that have been proven to reduce the prevalence of street harassment: Right To Be’s 5Ds of bystander intervention and how to prioritize your own safety while intervening. We’ll also talk about what to do if you’re worried the violence will turn on you and how to avoid escalating the situation. Then, we’ll talk about what to do if you experience harassment and give you tools to safely get your power back. We’ll have time at the end for practice.
Please register and invite your friends, family, neighbors, and co-workers to join you. Everyone is welcome; the more that all of us in Santa Cruz County feel empowered to intervene when we see something, the safer we can all feel and the more we can support each other in these
