In this virtual, interactive Zoom training sponsored by Asian Americans Advancing Justice | Chicago, CAIR Chicago, and Right to Be, you’ll learn how you can intervene effectively as a bystander without compromising your safety.
This 60-90 minute, interactive training will teach you Right to Be’s 5D’s of bystander intervention methodology. We’ll start by talking about the types of discrimination that Asian, Asian American, and Pacific Islander 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 5 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, and you’ll leave feeling more confident intervening the next time you see Anti-Asian/AAPI harassment.
