Bystander Intervention Training

Anti-Asian/American and xenophobic harassment are on the rise across the U.S. In this workshop presented by Asian Americans Advancing Justice | Chicago, CAIR Chicago, and Hollaback!, you'll learn how you can intervene effectively as a bystander without compromising your safety.

This interactive training will cover the types of disrespect and dangers that Asians, Asian Americans, and Muslims are facing right now and throughout history — from microaggressions to violence. Understand what to look for in scenarios and the positive impact that bystander intervention has on individuals and communities.

Learn the five strategies (5Ds) for intervention - distract, delegate, document, delay and direct - and how to prioritize your own safety while intervening, and leave feeling more confident intervening the next time you witness Islamophobic or Anti-Asian harassment.

Presented in partnership with the Arlington Heights Memorial Library.

Date and Time: Sunday, June 20, 2-3 p.m.
Location: Live on Zoom
