You are an unnamed, unseen member of a virtual group.

Bystander Intervention Trainings
In this one-hour, interactive online training, participants will:

  • learn about the types of disrespect and dangers that Asian and Asian American folks 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.
  • talk through five strategies (5Ds) for intervention and how to prioritize your own safety while intervening.
  • practice using the 5Ds so that participants are confident intervening the next time they witness Anti-Asian harassment.
  • Do you know about the 5 Ds of bystander intervention? Join one of our public virtual trainings to learn about how you can combat hate and harassment. We have plenty of spots available for our upcoming trainings - share it with your friends and family! To learn more and see additional dates, please visit: www.advancingjustice-chicago.org/antihate
