The Washington Peace Center is excited to present our next training as part of the resistance training series, which will focus on bystander intervention training.

In 2016, there was a 62% increase in hate violence in DC. This workshop will teach creative, non-confrontational strategies for responding to incidents of harassment and de-escalate aggressive behavior. Learn about some concrete ways to respond to such incidents.

Time: 7 PM to 9 PM
Location: St. Stephen’s Church (back auditorium), 1525 Newton St. NW

The DC Trainers’ Network monthly skillshare is a structured, interactive space where people can share skills and gain confidence in their training abilities and everybody is both a teacher and a learner. It strives to provide an inclusive practice space to experiment with different approaches for learning and teaching. This skillshare is part of our new Resistance Training Series to strengthen the skills of people in the movement.
