Bystander Intervention Workshop: A SURJ Sponsored Training

20161109_-_974C0269_-Trump_Post_Election_Protest_in_Oakland_-_photographed_by_Sam_Breach_2016_-_851_x_315.jpgAnnie Danger, Mike Esmailzadeh, and Heather will lead a two-hour workshop on the basics of intervening in public as a bystander. They will cover the basics of stance, assertiveness, and situational awareness as well as go into depth about different potential scenarios, legality of bystander intervention, physical and social skills and tactics for successful intervention, de-escalation, police involvement, knowing your place, and aftercare.

This workshop cannot cover all possibilities of intervention, but will provide a baseline for reducing harm and acting in effective solidarity with people being harassed or assaulted.

Tickets are sliding scale $10 - $20. No one turned away for lack of funds. Contact with ticket requests or questions.
