SCA is pleased to partner with Right To Be (formerly Hollaback!) to bring our members two educational sessions on mitigating implicit biases and practicing bystander intervention. This is the second of two sessions.
We welcome and encourage everyone, and especially SCA members, to attend these sessions free of charge in order to help create and help maintain an affirming and inclusive environment in our organization. At the end of each session, there will be a raffle drawing for a free year of SCA membership.
These sessions will not be recorded.
Bystander Intervention in Public Spaces:
We all have a responsibility to do something when we see street harassment happening, but too often we freeze. We don’t know what to do. Bystander intervention gives us tools to intervene without compromising our own safety. When we intervene, we don’t just reduce trauma for the person being street harassed. We also start to chip away at the culture that allows harassment to be so prevalent. Alone we can’t shift the culture — but together — our actions matter. In this training our goal is to give participants the tools to intervene the next time they witness harassment in public spaces. We will equip you with the right information on how to be an effective bystander in the midst of public space harassment using our proven 5D’s methodology, our five strategies for intervention. Then we will practice so you leave our training feeling more prepared to successfully and safely intervene.
