Hollaback! provides trainings on how to protect your neighbors and co-workers when bias and harassment collide in front of you. What’s worse than being targeted with harassment because of your race, sex, religion, color, gender, size, orientation, disability, age, or origin? Being targeted while surrounded by bystanders who see what is happening, but then do nothing.
It doesn’t have to be that way.
At this moment in history, there is a spike in disrespect, harassment, and hate violence. As bystanders, people need to be especially vigilant and aware of what disrespect, harassment, and hate violence look like in order to be able to stand up and intervene at a time when others need it most.
