LACUNY, in collaboration with the Office of Library Services and the Council of Chief Librarians, is pleased to sponsor a bystander intervention training for CUNY library faculty and staff. This training, provided by the Center for Anti-Violence Education, will empower bystanders with the tools they need to help those facing harassment in workplace and other situations by choosing intentionally from a continuum of tactics.

More information about this workshop:
The bystander intervention workshop involves building mind/body awareness, awareness of gender and race issues when intervening, how to report hate incidents, and how individuals can become involved in a movement to end systemic hate and violence. The training is highly interactive and allows each participant to choose to practice strategies that match their personality and comfort level. We will practice assertive communication skills and role play scenarios of harassment and Upstander intervention. Because many people are already survivors of harassment or violence, it is important to note that attendees are 100% in charge of their learning experience and may step out of activities at any time. The training is open to all whether you identify as someone targeted by hate, someone who wishes to be an ally to targeted communities, or both.
