We’ve been working hard on building an inclusive and anti-racist community. This work starts by building awareness within ourselves and with others to advancing our skills to intervene effectively when we witness racist words or actions in person, on social media, by email, or by phone. Whether we come across these incidents with family, colleagues, friends, or unknown people; wherever they fall on the spectrum of microaggression to harassment and threat, we need to build our toolbox for effective interruption and in some cases de-escalation.

This two-hour training will build off the experience and skills of participants and provide additional tools and practice in

Managing adrenalin in the moment
Understanding our own escalation triggers
Offering a range of effective intervention and de-escalation skills and tools
The session will be conducted virtually and will be highly interactive – with whole and small group discussion, scenario practice, and verbal and physical exercises and movement.
