HPJC - Bystander Intervention Training
HPJC - Bystander Intervention Training 2021.png
Learn how to help people targeted by identity-based bigotry and harassment.

This FREE 1.5-hour, interactive training will teach you Hollaback!’s 5D’s of bystander intervention methodology. We’ll start by talking about the types of disrespect — from microaggressions to violence — that people with marginalized identities face and the history of identity-based violence. You’ll also 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 identity-based harassment online or in person.

Thanks to a Four Freedoms Fund grant, Houston Coalition Against Hate, OCA-Greater Houston, and Hollaback! will present this training seven times to the public, starting in March 2021 and continuing monthly through the summer.
