BYSTANDER INTERVENTION TO SUPPORT LATINX COMMUNITIES IN PUBLIC SPACES TRAINING

Topic: BYSTANDER INTERVENTION TO SUPPORT LATINX COMMUNITIES IN PUBLIC SPACES TRAINING

Hosted By: iHollaback

Date: 12/1/2021
 
Time: 4:00 AM
 
Description: n honor of Latino Heritage Month and to bring awareness to the increase of harassment toward the Latinx community in recent years, Hollaback! is offering a free, one-hour, interactive training to train people on how to safely intervene when they witness Latinx people experiencing harassment in public using Hollaback!’s 5D’s of bystander intervention.  We’ll start by talking about the types of violence and harassment the Latinx community is experiencing right now from microaggressions to assault through exploring the Spectrum of Disrespect toward Latinx Communities. We will then discuss how the diversity of identities of Latinx people intersects with other marginalized identities to make the community vulnerable to experiencing multiple incidences of harassment at once. Anti-Latinx harassment and xenophobia are not a new phenomenon in our country. But in recent years with the rise in anti-immigrant, anti-Latinx, anti-LGBTQ, and anti-BIPOC policies and rhetoric we have seen a rise in harassment, discrimination, and even violence toward this community.

Increasing Leadership Activities to Improve Multidisciplinary Responses in Criminal Justice
Topic: Increasing Leadership Activities to Improve Multidisciplinary Responses in Criminal Justice

Hosted By: NCJTC

Date: 12/1/2021

Time: 5:00 AM

Description: Many communities continue to struggle with building an effective CCR to domestic violence, sexual assault, stalking and dating violence that involves every system and community-based stakeholder impacting a case. Ongoing collaboration and information-sharing on IPV and sexual assault cases is crucial to managing appropriate services and accurately communicating the level of risk, the safety needs as determined by the survivor, while also preventing significant case facts from falling through the cracks. Building and sustaining a multidisciplinary team takes leadership. During this webinar, you will learn state of the art practices that can substantially improve outcomes for victims/survivors, communities and offenders involved in the criminal justice system. Developing formal and informal leadership in organizations is key to improving outcomes and experiences for the clients being served.

Topic: Creating and Sustaining TCU Campus Led Coordinated Community Response Teams

Hosted By: Red Wind Consulting, Inc.

Date: 12/1/2021
 
Time: 6:00 AM
 
Description: A campus response to sexual assault can include many campus staff working in different departments. Campus Security, Title IX investigators, Counselors, Cultural Centers and faculty could be responding to students who have experienced sexual assault. It is critical that there is a clear and consistent response to ensure that students receive the support and services they need. In the first webinar in this series the presenters will define what a campus-led coordinated response team (CCR) is, who the key players are in a campus CCR, and how to develop plans, visions, protocols. The second part of this series will be more of a hands-on approach of steps to developing a coordinated community response team and how to sustain one through time.

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: iHollaback

Date: 12/1/2021
 
Time: 10:00 AM
 
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.

BYSTANDER INTERVENTION 2.0: CONFLICT DE-ESCALATION TRAINING WORKSHOP
Topic: BYSTANDER INTERVENTION 2.0: CONFLICT DE-ESCALATION TRAINING WORKSHOP

Hosted By: Hollaback
 
Date: 12/03/2021
 
Time: 9:00 AM
 
Description: If you’ve already taken our Bystander Intervention training and you’re looking to go deeper into how to directly intervene and de-escalate conflict: this training is for you. Conflict de-escalation requires patience, a willingness to listen, and an ability to see the humanity in everyone, even those we don’t agree with or who seek to hurt us. Using Hollaback!’s Observe-Breathe-Connect methodology, we’ll learn how to identify potential conflict before it escalates using our “pyramid of escalation” and how to assess whether intervening is the right action for you. We’ll talk about specific biases that are increasing conflict, harassment, and violence during COVID19 — and the role of implicit and explicit bias in conflict. We’ll also learn how to connect with others by validating and de-escalating their feelings — even if we don’t understand them or agree with them.  We’ll have time at the end to practice using real-life scenarios.

Campus Climate Surveys
Topic: Campus Climate Surveys

Hosted By: Red Wind Consulting, Inc.
 
Date: 12/07/2021

Time: 3:00 AM
 
Description: Understanding how sexual assault shows up on your campus is a critical piece in determining how you respond to sexual assault. Campus Climate Surveys provide colleges and universities the opportunity to understand the prevalence of sexual assault on campus and the experiences of students. There is not a lot of data surrounding sexual assault and tribal colleges and universities but based on recent reports such as the 2016 NIJ findings from the National Intimate Partner and Sexual Violence Survey by André B. Rosay, we might be inclined to say that TCU students experience sexual violence at alarming rates. Research is justifiably a sensitive topic in Indigenous communities and should be approached with care and consideration. This webinar will go in depth of what campus climates surveys are, how they help and best practices to follow. This webinar will also address the importance of Indigenous sovereignty and knowledge as well as how campus climate surveys can be improved in order to be culturally appropriate.

OPENING DOORS: ALTERNATIVE REPORTING OPTIONS FOR SEXUAL ASSAULT VICTIMS
Topic: OPENING DOORS: ALTERNATIVE REPORTING OPTIONS FOR SEXUAL ASSAULT VICTIMS

Hosted By: EVAWI
 
Date: 12/09/2021

Time: 8:00 AM
 
Description: This presentation explores strategies to increase reporting options for sexual assault victims. These approaches are grounded in a victim-centered and trauma-informed philosophy, encapsulated in the concepts of one step at a time and opening doors.  One Step at a Time: How can professionals support a gradual process of disclosure and reporting (rather than “all or nothing,” and “now or never”)?  Opening Doors: How can professionals increase the number of options available for victims to report their sexual assault and access services?  After outlining key concepts and defining basic terminology, the presentation examines specific policy and practice considerations for communities seeking to implement alternative reporting options. Ultimately, victims who have more ways to access information and support, to receive physical and psychological care, and to preserve the viability of a criminal justice intervention, will have more opportunities to successfully participate in the criminal justice process if and when they choose to. Participants will leave this session prepared to advance a one step at a time and opening doors approach, by developing a comprehensive multidisciplinary protocol for their own communities.

We’ll talk through five strategies for intervention: distract, delegate, document, delay, and direct; and how to prioritize your own safety while intervening. We’ll also talk about what to do if you’re a person of color worried the violence will turn on you and how to avoid being a “white savior.”  We’ll have time at the end for practice, and you’ll leave feeling more confident intervening the next time you see police sponsored, anti-black harassment or violence.
