Event Type

The Westchester County Human Rights Commission is proud to offer another live interactive workshop in partnership with Hollaback to empower you to stand up for when you see harassment in public spaces. We all have a responsibility to do something but too often we freeze because 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 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, the Westchester County Human Rights Commission’s goal is to give participants the tools to intervene the next time they witness harassment in public spaces. This workshop will equip you with tools on how to be an effective bystander in the midst of public space harassment using Hollaback’s proven 5D’s methodology, its five strategies for intervention. Then you will have the opportunity to practice these skills in the workshop so you leave the training feeling more prepared to successfully and safely intervene.
