Hate crimes are on the rise in the United States. While violent crimes dominate the media, public harassment and hate speech are widespread and rarely reported. People may be targeted for harassment or hate speech because of their skin color, ethnicity, religion, sex, gender-identity, sexual orientation, body shape, or any number of other reasons. How should you react if you witness public harassment or hate speech?

Join us for this interactive workshop to learn five simple, effective techniques to safely intervene when you witness public harassment.
