Open to all genders, age 15+

In this workshop, students learn strategies to handle disrespect, harassment, and abuse that they face or witness others facing when it comes to identity-based violence (i.e. religion, gender, sexuality, race). Through active discussions, scenario role-playing, and hands-on practice, students are empowered with skills to maximize their personal safety. We cover:

  • Assertive communication and de-escalation skills to challenge discrimination based on race, religion, gender/ gender identity, sexual orientation, ability, and other factors
  • Situational awareness and risk assessment
  • Bystander intervention techniques to stand up for others
  • Physical self-defense techniques to use in the event of violence
