Join three free online training sessions with Hollaback!
Our grantee Hollaback! works to end harassment in all its forms by transforming the culture that perpetuates hate and harassment. Last month, CREDO members voted to donate over $42,000 to help the organization build the power of everyday people to create safe and welcoming environments for all.
This month, Hollaback would like to invite CREDO members to join one, two or three free virtual trainings covering street harassment, bystander intervention and implicit bias. These trainings are a great way to learn some concrete tools and techniques to protect yourself and your communities from harassment and bias.
Here’s more information from Hollaback about each session with links to sign up today:
Stand Up Against Street Harassment
Wednesday, November 10, 2021 at 5PM ET / 2PM PT
We all have a responsibility to do something when we see street harassment happening, but too often we freeze. We don’t know what to do. Bystander intervention gives us tools to intervene without compromising our own safety. During this training you’ll learn a clear, adaptable, and expert-approved set of tools that have been proven to reduce the prevalence of street harassment. Then, we’ll talk about what to do if you experience harassment and give you tools to safely get your power back.
