Active Bystander Training

  • Pilgrim Church 55 Coolidge Avenue Lexington, MA, 02420 United States (map)

In honor of MLK weekend, LexPride is offering this free active bystander training for the community. This program helps you recognize when you are bystanders, analyze situations, and evaluate the consequences for everyone involved. It teaches how you can interrupt harm doing and generate positive actions by others.

Active bystandership does not mean aggression against the harm doer. It means taking responsible action to help people in need instead of remaining passive and becoming complicit. You will gain the competencies you need if you decide to take action when you witness something you feel is unfair, or wrong, or troubling.
