Bystander Intervention in Public Spaces Training

Workshop Description:

More dates coming soon.

We all have a responsibility to do something when we see harassment happening, but too often we freeze. We don’t know what to do. Bystander intervention gives us tools to intervene without compromising our own safety.  When we intervene, we don’t just reduce trauma for the person being harassed. We also start to chip away at the culture that allows harassment to be so prevalent.  Alone we can’t shift the culture — but together — our actions matter.In this training our goal is to give participants the tools to intervene the next time they witness harassment in public spaces.

We will equip you with the right information on how to be an effective bystander in the midst of public space harassment using our proven 5D’s methodology, our five strategies for intervention. Then we will practice so you leave our training feeling more prepared to successfully and safely intervene.

I was feeling unsure of what to do if I encountered someone who was being harassed or shown disrespectful behavior.

Thoughtful, understandable, and applicable. This training made me feel prepared to evaluate situations and act in a variety of ways. I love how this training put the needs of the harasser first and took into consideration the variables of each bystander – made me feel empowered to act in a way that suits a variety of situations.


A great hour to be spent learning, or being reminded of, the best ways to act during situations of harassment. It should be required for all…
