Access the full training document and more on the American Friends Service Committee website:

This training focuses on ways to intervene in public instances of racist, anti-Black, anti-Muslim, anti-Trans, and other forms of oppressive interpersonal violence and harassment while considering the safety of all parties. In addition to group discussion, participants have the opportunity to use role-plays as a tool in practicing intervention techniques, and learning new ways to protect ourselves and our communities. We do not believe anyone is an expert on bystander intervention as different situations and one’s own risk factors will influence how they intervene; however, we seek to hold space for people to share skills and experiences in a safer and affirming environment.
