In response to the recent rise of anti-Asian racism during the Covid-19 pandemic and to help Asian Canadians better deal with racist harassments, CPAC has assembled a group of experts from across North America to present a series of educational webinars for the community in both English and Chinese. The topics include: Racism and Its Visible and Invisible Forms, Discrimination and Human Rights, Responding to Racist Harassments and Attacks, Bystander Intervention, Preventing Racial Bullying in School, and Racism, Hate Crime and Personal and Property Safety.

On November 12, 2020, we will be presenting the eleventh workshop of this webinar series, How to Intervene during Racist Harassment and Attacks? The webinar will be presented by Courtney Mangus, Programs Coordinator, the Council on American-Islamic Relations, in ENGLISH with simultaneous interpretation into CHINESE.

This witness/bystander Intervention Training teaches participants how to safely provide support to someone who is targeted for a race-motivated harassment or attack. Participants will also learn the hands-on skills of de-escalation and about the various factors involved in a hate crime or a hate incident. You should walk away from this training feeling more confident to step in as an ally to a targeted person. Many of the principles and strategies involved can also apply to situations where you are the target of racial harassment or attack.
