Bystander Intervention Training
Burlington Library, January 17, 6:30 – 8:30 pm
This is a great opportunity if you missed this training last year or want to have a refresher. Come see for yourself why people are so excited about this.
You are standing in line at the grocery store, and someone starts giving an immigrant family in the line a hard time. You are waiting at the bus stop, and a group of guys starts harassing a young woman. You are in any public place and….. What can you do?
Ty Schroyer will lead us in Bystander Intervention Training to help us answer that question. Using principals of nonviolence and de-escalation strategies, we have the power to support the person being targeted and defuse a situation that otherwise might escalate.
