BYSTANDER INTERVENTION: HOW TO BE AN ALLY WHEN YOU WITNESS ONLINE ABUSE
Topic: BYSTANDER INTERVENTION: HOW TO BE AN ALLY WHEN YOU WITNESS ONLINE ABUSE
Hosted By: Hollaback
Time: 3:00 AM ChST
Description: As more of our personal and professional lives go digital, online hate and harassment are on the rise. Abusive trolls join forces to disproportionately target BIPOCs, women, and LGBTQ+ folks to intimidate, discredit, and silence. Each and every one of us can be an ally. In this free, one-hour, interactive training, we’ll give you the tools you need to intervene safely and effectively in online abuse using Hollaback!’s 5D’s of bystander intervention. First, we’ll talk through what online harassment is and how to identify abusive tactics. We’ll discuss the severe impact online abuse can have – on well being, livelihoods, and free expression – and how it’s drowning out voices that urgently need to be heard in public discourse. Then we’ll share concrete strategies for how to distract, delegate, document, delay, or directly intervene in a way that is safe, effective, and centered on the needs of the person being targeted. We’ll have time to practice so you can leave feeling more confident intervening the next time you see someone being abused online. We hope you’ll join us to learn how we can all band together to make the internet a safer, more diverse, and more equitable place.
Intersectional justice and safety from sexual violence: Spotlights from a new report on health equity strategies
Topic: Intersectional justice and safety from sexual violence: Spotlights from a new report on health equity strategies
Hosted By: Prevent Connect: A ValorUS Project; Prevention Institute; NSVCR (National Sexual Violence Resource Center)
Date: Wednesday, August 25, 2021
Time: 4:00 AM ChST
Description: A new joint publication by Prevention Institute and the National Sexual Violence Resource Center (NSVRC) , A Health Equity Approach to Preventing Sexual Violence, explores five strategies to build communities where everyone has a fair and just opportunity to be safe from sexual violence. These strategies include: 1) elevating community leadership and resilience; 2) creating spaces for healing in prevention efforts; 3) facilitating internal organizational change; 4) addressing underlying factors that contribute to violence and safety; and, 5) partnering across fields and movements. The report features examples of these strategies in action. One Fair Wage is bringing together movements for economic, racial, and gender justice through advocacy by and for workers in the restaurant and service industries. This includes campaigns to decrease workers’ exposure to exploitation, wage theft, financial insecurity, discrimination, and sexual harassment. The Michigan Coalition to End Sexual and Domestic Violence is investing in intersectionality, economic justice, and representative leadership internally and across their work.
