Working with partners to support National Hate Crime Awareness Week
We are pleased to be working with our partners this year to support activities during National Hate Crime Awareness Week.
We are really excited to be hosting an online Active Bystander training session on Wednesday 12th October from 1pm to 4pm . This is a free session run by Protection Aproaches.
The expert-led session see participants guided through a series of discussions to explore how they can play a role in tackling identity-based prejudice and violence in their community.
The session will cover:
What it means to be an active bystander: through group discussion the participants explore what being an active bystander means to them
Standing up for victims: working through a series of scenarios, participants consider and learn what they can do when they encounter prejudice, harassment, or identity-based violence such as a racist attack in a supermarket or an inappropriate comment from a colleague
Proactive prevention: returning to the scenarios participants reflect on the root causes of prejudice and discrimination before discussing ways they could contribute to dismantling those root causes and to building safer, more inclusive, and just communities.
