“revelatory and illuminating” – former workshop attendee.

Based on the Bystander Intervention Training developed and offered by IHollaBack (now Right to Be), this 2 hour session will share 5 options for intervening and apply them to scenarios that have happened in UU spaces. We will also look at how to adapt these strategies when we witness racism within our own faith community.
