Bystander Intervention Training - Ann Arbor
As we see media accounts of attacks against immigrants, Muslims, and other populations, many of us have asked ourselves, “What would or could I have done if I were there?” The good news is that there are skills and techniques that you can learn and practice to keep others safe. This training will show you how to respond and develop your skills toolbox in non-violent communication and action. Sheri Wander, trainer for Meta Peace Team with 20+ years experience on peacekeeping teams all over the world and certified ICPJ facilitators will co-teach the basic tactics you can use to de-escalate or redirect threats and harassment. Registration fee: $20 In addition we have set aside a number of free or reduced-price spaces available for those who need them. There are also spaces set aside for members of targeted communities (people of color, LGBTQ community, Muslims, immigrants, etc). Contact Germaine, email@example.com, for more info. CANCELLATION POLICY: A minimum of 10 registered participants are required for the training. If less than 10 people are registered, you will be notified of the cancellation three days in advance of the event date.
