About the event
This 3 hour interactive course has been developed by identity-based violence prevention charity, Protection Approaches in partnership with the Britain`s East and South East Asian Network (besea.n). The expert-led sessions see participants guided through a series of discussions to explore how they can play a role in tackling identity-based harms in their community, school, or place of work.
You will learn:
- What it means to be an active bystander: through group discussion the participants explore what being an active bystander means to them
- Standing up for victims: working through a series of scenarios, participants consider and learn what they can do when they encounter prejudice, harassment, or identity-based violence such as a racist attack in a supermarket or an inappropriate comment from a colleague
- Proactive prevention: returning to the scenarios participants reflect on the root causes of prejudice and discrimination before discussing ways they could contribute to dismantling those root causes and to building safer, more inclusive, and just communities.
