Social Justice/Public Witness – Week of 11/13/23

You can learn about de-escalating conflict in public spaces; this 60-minute interactive training teaches you how to handle situations so that hate and harassment don’t escalate into violence. 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. Using Right To Be’s Observe-Breathe-Connect methodology, this training can teach you how to identify potential conflict before it escalates using our “pyramid of escalation” and how to assess whether intervening is the right action. Register here.
