Please join us and the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) for a Bystander & Ally Intervention Training happening next Thursday, January 18th at 6 pm in the Fellowship Hall at the University Christian Church in HIllcrest. This event is free and open to Muslims and non-Muslims alike; the more diversity the better. The training is family friendly and we will be touching upon the topics of Islamophobia, Racism, Bigotry, Trans/LGBTQ issues and overall discrimination.

The American Muslim community, among many others, has seen a considerable increase in the number of hate crimes and bias incidents. Incidents like these can be frightening, but turning a blind eye is also not an option anymore.

Our Bystander & Ally Intervention Training will elaborate on how to better act as allies, protect our family, friends, neighbors and colleagues and help dismantle the systematic biases that allow hate to happen. The key word is “DE-ESCALATION.” By learning the basics behind safe and proactive intervention this training will equip you with the proper tools to help a victim of harassment without escalating the situation.
