Active Bystander Training – Nashua NH
Wednesday, November 8, 2017
6:00 PM – 9:00 PM
Temple Beth Abraham
4 Raymond Road
Join GSOP and United Way to learn how to be an “active bystander!” This training will be available in both Spanish and English.
Dinner will be served and there is no cost to attend. Donations will be accepted to cover the cost of the food. To get more information and register Click here or call 603-864-0202.
Active Bystander training is a short, interactive opportunity to think about what you would do if you witness someone doing harm to another.
Active Bystander training helps participants recognize when they are bystanders, analyze the situation and their options, and evaluate the consequences of their actions. It increases bystanders’ effectiveness by teaching how we each can interrupt harm doing and generate positive actions by others. Instead of becoming complicit through remaining passive, participants learn the competencies they need to decide to take action when they witness something they feel is troubling, unfair, or wrong. Active bystandership does not mean aggression against the harm doer, it means taking responsible action to help people in need.
Come join MomsRising and GSOP!
