As we see an increase in hate crimes and attacks against immigrants, Muslims, and other vulnerable populations in our communities, many of us have asked ourselves, “What would or what could I do if I were there?” The good news is that there are skills and techniques that you can learn and practice to keep others safe. You don’t have to be passive. Our 4 hour Basic Bystander Training will show you how to respond.
