Active Bystander Intervention Training
Sponsored by DC Peace Team

Sunday September 22nd, 1-5pm
Location: Black Workers Wellness Center, 2500 Martin Luther King Jr. Ave. SE Washington DC 20020

An active bystander training teaches effective skills for assessing, de-escalating, and diffusing a problematic situation. Active bystander training focuses on a bystander observing a problematic situation and determining if and how to intervene. This is distinct from self-assertion training that teaches how to de-escalate and diffuse unwanted attention when you are being attacked. An active bystander is someone who not only witnesses a situation, but takes steps to speak up or step in to keep a situation from escalating or to disrupt a problematic situation.

This is a beginner’s workshop designed for those that may have none to little prior studies of bystander intervention.

This training is provided by the DC Peace Team, which unleashes the power of ordinary civilians to increasingly serve their communities particularly as nonviolent peacekeepers, and by extension as peacemakers and peacebuilders. The DC Peace Team lives this mission by: deploying unarmed civilian protection and peacekeeping units, providing training in various nonviolent skills, providing crisis mediation, and facilitating dialogues and restorative justice approaches.
