Bystander Intervention Training: Learn to Respond to Harassment and Discrimination

Join Jessica Raven of Collective Action for Safe Spaces (CASS) for a special 2-hour workshop to learn how to recognize subtle signs of aggression and use creative, non-confrontational bystander intervention strategies to stop harassment and prevent it from escalating to assault. This hands-on training will open your eyes to potential aggressions and micro-aggressions that might go on around you. Find ways to stay safe while still protecting the rights and dignity of others.

Collective Action for Safe Spaces (CASS) is a grassroots organization that works to empower people in the DC metropolitan area to build a community free from public sexual harassment and assault.

Sunday January 15, 3-5 pm at Lighthouse Yoga Center, 4203 9th Street NW (9th and Upshur) in Petworth.
