Description: 

In this webinar we will explore using the bystander approach of sexual violence prevention with marginalized communities. Participants will expand their knowledge of the LGBTQ community, learn the basic principles of bystander intervention, and finally, using the LGBTQ population as an example, will practice customizing bystander intervention programs to the populations we work with. Though most bystander intervention programs in existence are geared towards college or university students, participants will get the opportunity to examine various scenarios that directly affect their constituents and brainstorm how to interrupt these situations both safely and effectively.Presented by Erin McCready and Seth Kirby from Oasis Youth Center in Tacoma, WA.  This webinar is free but space is limited.
