Upcoming Free Online Bystander Training to Stop Anti-Asian/American and Xenophobic Harassment

Almost all the registrants (96%) of our self-defense training indicated that they want to learn how to deal with anti-Asian hate crimes and incidents.

Thankfully, Hollaback is hosting several upcoming free online bystander training: “The 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, and you’ll leave feeling more confident intervening the next time you see Anti-Asian/American harassment online or in-person.”
