Bystander Trainings by RightToBe (formerly Hollaback!)

Hollaback! is offering free, one-hour, interactive trainings to train people

Participants will learn a clear, adaptable, and expert-approved set of tools that have been proven to reduce the prevalence of harassment: 5Ds of bystander intervention (distract, delegate, document, delay, and direct); followed by how to prioritize one’s own safety while intervening.
