Culturally Sensitive Up-Stander Training
With the growing tide of Islamophobia and the number of hate crime incidents in communities and school settings, this workshop aims to educate individuals on how to be Up Standers without violating religious limitations. It provides step by step strategies on how to be an Up Stander for an observant Muslim by providing cultural sensitivity tips followed by Q/A.
These techniques can be used with anyone being targeted regardless of race, religion, age, etc. The workshop presents how and when to intervene in an incident, offer techniques to distract the harasser, and offer support to the individual who is being targeted. This training incorporates non-invasive techniques and promotes a safe way to stand up to intervene, get the victim to safety, and how to discretely contact police or others to aid the victim.
