In response to the sharp and sustained rise in anti-Asian harassment, Advancing Justice Chicago is partnering with the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) Chicago and Hollaback! to offer local interactive online bystander intervention trainings to help people identify hate incidents as they happen and take action safely and effectively.
This 60-70 minute, interactive training 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, you’ll leave feeling more confident intervening the next time you see Anti-Asian/American harassment.
The training is on Thursday, Oct. 7th, at 7 p.m. CDT.
