Bystander Intervention Training — Ann Arbor

As we see media accounts of attacks against immigrants, Muslims, and other populations, many of us have asked ourselves, “what would I do if I were there?” The good news is that there are skills and techniques that you can learn and practice to keep others safe.

You don’t have to be passive! This training will show you how to respond. Sheri Wander, trainer for Meta Peace Team, and other facilitators will co-teach the basic tactics you can use to de-escalate or redirect threats and harassment.
