United Against Hate Week: Bystander Training

November 17 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Free

BYSTANDER INTERVENTION TO STOP ISLAMOPHOBIC AND XENOPHOBIC HARASSMENT

Presented by Right to Be (formerly Hollaback) for United Against Hate Week. Register Here: https://righttobe.org/events/bystander-intervention-to-stop-islamophobic-and-xenophobic-harassment-2/

This one-hour, interactive training will teach you Right To Be’s 5Ds of bystander intervention methodology. We’ll start by talking about the types of disrespect that Muslims and those who are perceived to be Muslim are facing right now — from microaggressions to violence — using a tool we call the “spectrum of disrespect.” You’ll 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. We’ll have time at the end for practice, and you’ll leave feeling more confident intervening the next time you see Islamophobic and Xenophobic harassment online or in person.

This program is part of the United Against Hate Week suite of events happening November 13 through 20th throughout Santa Cruz County, Sponsored by Santa Cruz County for Safe and Inclusive Communities (SCCUSIC), The Resource Center for Nonviolence (RCNV), and the Santa Cruz Public Libraries (SCPL).
