Bystander Intervention to Support Trans* Equality | Jun 25, 2022
Online and Free, Jun. 25, 2022: This one-hour, interactive training will teach you Right To Be‘s 5Ds of bystander intervention methodology.
You’ll start by talking about identities that fall under the trans* umbrella and the types of disrespect that trans* folks are facing right now — from microaggressions to violence — using a tool Right To Be calls the “spectrum of disrespect.”
You will also learn a little bit about the impact of disrespect and harassment on trans*-identifying folks and the positive impact that intervention can have.
You’ll talk through five strategies for intervention: distract, delegate, document, delay, and direct; and how to prioritize your own safety while intervening.
Finally, you will have the opportunity to practice intervening with a series of scenarios. The training will close with a brief visioning exercise, so you leave feeling more confident intervening the next time you see transphobic harassment online or in person.
Join the training with Right to Be, Saturday, Jun. 25, 2022, 2 p.m.-3:00 p.m. Eastern.REGISTER
