Green Dot Bystander Intervention Training

Free

with Elias, Lane Moore-Leamon, Auburn Adult and Community Education

Calendar Mar 6, 2019 at 6 pm, runs for 4 weeks

Have you ever seen or heard someone harass, bully, or threaten another person, and wished you knew what to say or do?  Most of us have.  We are all much more likely to be a bystander than a participant or victim of hateful and hurtful words and behavior.  Green Dot teaches safe and proven-effective Bystander Intervention techniques that every member of a community can use, both proactively to change our culture for the better, and reactively to reduce harm.  None of us can do everything, but each of us can do our part to make Lewiston-Auburn a safer and more welcoming community.
