Learn how to help people targeted by identity-based bigotry and harassment. Register today at https://houstonagainsthate.org/BIT
This FREE 1.5-hour, interactive training will teach you Hollaback!’s 5D’s of bystander intervention methodology. We’ll start by talking about the types of disrespect — from microaggressions to violence — that people with marginalized identities face and the history of identity-based violence. You’ll also 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 identity-based harassment online or in person.
Thanks to a Four Freedoms Fund grant, Houston Coalition Against Hate, OCA-Greater Houston, and Hollaback! will present this training seven times to the public, starting in February 2021 and continuing monthly through the summer.
All training dates for 2021 are all on Thursday at 12pm:
