We Stand UP

This event is FREE and open to the entire CUE community. Register here.

Like much of the world, we are all still figuring out how COVID19 will change us. We’ve seen what happens when millions of people band together to take care of one another against the odds. How can we bring that forward into our lives after this is over?

It starts by taking action right now. Join us for a one-hour, interactive, virtual training to learn how to intervene when you see harassment happening. We’ll talk about what harassment looks like — from microaggressions to violence — and how Hollaback!’s 5D’s of bystander intervention can help: distract, delegate, document, delay, and direct.

We’ll also talk about how to prioritize your own safety while intervening and how to respond if you get harassed. We’ll have time at the end for practice, and you’ll leave feeling more confident intervening the next time you see street harassment!

Presenter: Julie Lalonde is an award-winning feminist activist fighting to end violence against women.
