This workshop, presented by the Center for Anti-Violence Education (CAE), is designed to help New Yorkers facing hate and violence defend themselves, and empower bystanders with the tools they need to help those facing harassment.
The program involves building mind/body awareness, awareness of gender and race issues when intervening, how to report hate incidents, and how individuals can become involved in a movement to end systemic hate and violence. The training is highly interactive and allows each participant to choose to practice strategies that match their personality and comfort level. We will practice assertive communication skills, some physical moves such as “head blocks” to protect yourself physically, and role play scenarios of harassment and Upstander intervention.
It is important to note that participants are 100% in charge of their learning experience and may step out of activities at any time. 
The training is open to all whether you identify as someone targeted by hate, someone who wishes to be an ally to targeted communities, or both.
Fees: $20*/$40/$80
