About the training:
As tensions flare and incidents of public hate skyrocket, join us as we explore what inhibits us from interrupting hate. Learn how to overcome those inhibitions and practice skills for becoming a strong ally for all those targeted in today’s hostile climate. Using tools and methodologies proven over decades of use from the foundational text: Training Active Bystanders, we will learn how to build a culture of peace by engaging in active nonviolence.
