Bystander Intervention to Stop Anti-Asian/American Harassment and Xenophobia

Thursday, April 29, 2021 - 3:00pm to 4:00pm

The Saddleback College Department of Psychology is encouraging students across campus and the community to attend the Bystander Intervention to Stop Anti-Asian/American Harassment and Xenophobia event on April 29, 2021 from 3 to 4 pm. RSVP for this interactive Zoom session online

This one-hour, interactive training will teach you Hollaback!’s 5D’s of bystander intervention methodology. We’ll start by talking about the types of disrespect that Asian and Asian American folks are facing right now — from microaggressions to violence — using a tool we call the “spectrum of disrespect.” You’ll 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 Anti-Asian/American harassment online or in person.

If you cannot make this date but wish to attend the Webinar training, please check out alternative dates for March and April  on this calendar:
