Bystander Intervention Training

Bystander intervention is rooted in non-violence and helps us move from passive to active when we witness injustice. In our politically-charged climate, non-violent intervention is a tool we all can use. This training from YWCA Warren and YWCA Youngstown staff will empower you to:


1. understand identity-based violence (i.e. Islamophobia, racism, gender-based harassment)

2. take ownership and responsibility when a situation arises

3. learn skills to safely diffuse a tense situation

4. support victims of harassment, abuse, and violence

5. be an active participant in reducing violence in our community.
