AAPIP Co-Sponsored Bystander Intervention Training

Tue, May 04, 2021 - 1:30pm to 2:30pm

Dear AAPIP Community,

We hope you'll join us next Tuesday, May 4th at 3:30 pm PDT / 6:30 pm EDT for a free, one-hour virtual Bystander Intervention workshop co-sponsored by AAPIP, Asian Americans Advancing Justice - Asian Law Caucus, and Hollaback! 

As Anti-Asian/American and xenophobic harassment rise across the US - and the world - all of us are called upon to take action. 

This one-hour, interactive training will teach you Hollaback!’s 5D’s of bystander intervention methodology. We’ll start by talking about the types of disrespect that Asian and Asian American folks are facing right now -- from microaggressions to violence -- using a tool we call the “spectrum of disrespect.” You’ll 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, including example scenarios in philanthropic workplaces, and you’ll leave feeling more confident intervening the next time you see anti-Asian/American harassment online or in person.

We hope you'll join us! Register for the free, one-hour virtual workshop here.

In community,
The AAPIP Team
