“Looking Out for Each Other: Bystander Intervention Training”
A Virtual Town Hall sponsored by Senator Liz Krueger and the New York City Commission on Human Rights
Thursday, October 28th from 7pm – 8:30pm
Bystander intervention is predicated on the idea that we all play a role in creating safe public spaces for each other when we see our neighbors and community members facing bias, discrimination, or harassment.
The NYC Commission on Human Rights provides trainings to New Yorkers with the tools and strategies to help New Yorkers respond safely when they witness bias incidents and discrimination. Participants leave these trainings equipped with verbal and behavioral de-escalation strategies to intervene non-violently to disrupt hate-violence or hate speech.
The Commission’s training was developed in partnership with the Center of Anti-Violence Education NYC.
The Virtual Town Hall will feature:
· Annabel Palma, Chair and Commissioner, NYC Commission on Human Rights
· Jonah Boyarin, Jewish Communities Liaison, Associate Human Rights Specialist, NYC Commission on Human Rights
· Ryan DuBois, Associate Human Rights Specialist, NYC Commission on Human Rights
