Bystander to Upstander: Transforming Culture

The Bystander to Upstander workshop empowers participants to transform from bystanders to upstanders to build communities that support difference and unify against intolerance. An upstander is an individual who chooses to take positive action in the face of injustice or intolerance. Participants will learn how to identify harmful behaviors such as sexual violence, racism, and sexism. Participants will also learn and apply upstander skills to impact positive change and promote a culture of nonviolence. This interactive workshop allows each participant to practice upstander strategies that match their personality and comfort level.

By the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:  

  • Identify moments of injustice or intolerance
  • Gain confidence in addressing moments of injustice or intolerance
  • Use engagement and conversational tactics to de-escalate harmful situations
  • Take the most appropriate and effective action to stand up to injustice or intolerance
