Upstander Training

June 10, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Not In Our City and WHARR are teaming up with the Center for Anti-Violence Education (CAE) to offer members a unique opportunity to attend a FREE Upstander Workshop, made possible through funding from Brad Lander’s office.

Last week, a woman went on an anti-Semitic rant against an Orthodox Jewish man on the subway. Earlier this month, New Yorkers were stunned when a lawyer went on an anti-immigrant tirade at a Midtown deli. How should you react if you find yourself witnessing this type of situation? How can you help the victim without further escalating the situation?

CAE’s upstander workshops are designed to equip those facing harassment, hate and violence with de-escalation skills and basic self-defense techniques. For more information, check out CAE’s website. Space is limited to 15 participants – please use this event to reserve your spot.
