**Upstander Intervention: A Free Training**
3-4PM, January 13th, 2022 (Online)
Presenter: Johnny Humphrey, Director of Inclusivity Services, The Center on Colfax
“Oftentimes we observe conflicts and situations but don’t know how to intervene safely and effectively. Historically, anti-harassment courses have taught what not to do, but generally exclude techniques for what to do. This course provides effective strategies for identifying when a conflict is occurring and ways to safely intervene. We will discuss a variety of intervention strategies and apply them to different scenarios. Note: This training is appropriate for most audiences new to LGBTQ+ awareness.”
