Active Bystander Skills * Free Public Workshop *

Sunday, January 15, 2023, 3:30 pm to 5:30 pm ET on Zoom

Appropriate for ages 13 to adult

To commemorate the work and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, we offer this public workshop as an action you can take to observe Hopkinton’s MLK Giving Back initiative. Please join us for a 2-hour introductory, skill building workshop on how to be an empowered active bystander.

  • Explore how to safely and effectively intervene when we witness situations of bigotry or injustice.

  • Participate in action-oriented practices and role plays to work through challenging scenarios based on real life, so that we can be better prepared with skills to step in.

  • Learn the basics of how to speak up in different situations, how to engage allies, and how to participate in effective dialogue to help build a culture of change in your communities.
