The Bystander Toolbox

Bystander intervention is an imperfect art; there is so much that we cannot predict or account for, especially when we acknowledge that safety looks different for every person based on their unique set of values, histories, experiences, and identities. Taking all of this into consideration, in this workshop we offer skills and tools to utilize when witnessing a potentially harmful interaction, whether it is an instance of sexual harassment, a racist micro-aggression, or a harmful joke. We don't have to be heroes or saviors or put ourselves at risk to be accountable community members. Effective intervention is all about recognizing the unique obstacles we face, and identifying strategies to get around them, connect to others, and enhance safety.
