Bystander Intervention: I took you training yesterday…
Hello – I took your training yesterday on Bystander Intervention and today was able to utilize the skills I learned. I noticed that an old high school mate of mine had posted something in regards to the New Mexico Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham, where he called her “Wuhan Lujan” on Facebook. I asked him to explain more what he meant by that phrase and noted that it came across as racist and was not sure if that was his intent. I have not heard back from him. I also reported the hate speech to Facebook.
I don’t know how I would have responded or not responded without your training – I really appreciate the 5Ds that I learned about and believe they will continue to help me in the future be a bystander who can actively and safely intervene when I witness or experience harassment.
