AAAJBYSTANDER INTERVENTION TRAINING WITH AAAJ - July 28, 2022

*please note this event was previously scheduled for June 1st but rescheduled to July 28th

Attend a training led by Asian Americans Advancing Justice on the increase in aggressions against the Asian American community, and how bystander intervention can have a positive impact. Join us afterwards at 8pm for dinner/boba in Chinatown to debrief and connect!

 

Thursday, July 28, 2022
5:00 - 6:00 pm Zoom training

6:45 - 8:30 pm Chinatown meetup, location TBD

 

In this one-hour, interactive online training, participants will:

  • learn about the types of disrespect and dangers that Asian and Asian American folks are facing right now and throughout history — from microaggressions to violence.
  • understand what to look for in scenarios and the positive impact that bystander intervention has on individuals and communities.
  • talk through five strategies (5Ds) for intervention and how to prioritize your own safety while intervening.
  • practice using the 5Ds so that participants are confident intervening the next time they witness Anti-Asian harassment.

Join us after the training for a meetup in the new Chinatown plaza (around 8pm) for conversation and connecting! Restaurant details will be shared after RSVPs.
