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

April 22, 2021 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm

In response to the sharp and sustained rise in anti-Asian harassment, Hunter College is partnering with Hollaback! and Asian Americans Advancing Justice Center to offer trainings to learn about the context of anti-Asian racism in the United States, help people identify incidents as they happen, and take action safely and effectively. These free, online trainings are open to all Hunter students and the Hunter College community.  

This interactive training will teach you Hollaback!’s 5Ds 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.
