Girls Initiatives Bystander Intervention Webinars
Covid 19 is NO excuse for abuse! In anticipation of the relaunch of our annual Potential to Power Girls Symposium, YWCA NYC’s Girls Initiatives is hosting the Spark the Sisterhood Seminar Series! Join us from May-June 2020 for FREE 90 minute virtual sessions that connect intersectional feminism and social justice to critically examine bystander intervention. Learn effective ways to identify harmful behaviors and challenge bias-motivated harassment and assault!
Each webinar applies a racial and gender justice lens to discuss harassment and violence targeting the most vulnerable members of our communities, empowering participants to take responsibility in situations that involve harmful behaviors. Activate your inner activist this Spring with powerful conversations and thought-provoking activities! **Ages 15 and up! All are welcome to attend, especially individuals that identify as someone targeted by hate, someone who wishes to be an ally to targeted communities, or both.
