Building a Culture of Peace Forum – Active Bystander Training on Oct 10th

The Building a Culture of Peace Forum is  excited to launch their 11th year with their  Fall Forum of “Active Bystander Training” on October 10th at the Concord UU church at 6:45 PM.

The program is offered by trainers from Granite State Organizing Project. As always, our Forums are free to the community and all are welcome.

What is a bystander?

“A bystander is a witness—someone who sees a harmful situation and has choices to make: Do I do something? What do I do? TAB training helps participants recognize when they are bystanders, analyze the situation, and evaluate the consequences of their actions.”

Unlike other Forums, we are asking those interested to RSVP and reserve a place by emailing Kimm Philips of our Forum planning group.

Below is more information about the content of the training.

Training Active Bystanders (TAB)

The TAB curriculum increases bystanders’ effectiveness by teaching how we each can interrupt harm doing and generate positive actions by others. Instead of becoming complicit through remaining passive, participants learn the competencies they need to decide to take action when they witness something they feel is troubling, unfair, or wrong. Active bystandership does not mean aggression against the harm doer, it means taking responsible action to help people in need. Giving people the tools to create justice in the moment of need can transform them and their communities.

The TAB training includes:

-What inhibits bystanders from acting
-What promotes positive bystander behavior
-Putting oneself into the victim’s situation
-Feeling responsibility for others’ welfare
-Competence. The ability to have a positive influence, avoid harm to oneself and others
-Safe, non-confrontational strategies for intervention
-Promote caring for people both within and beyond one’s own group
-Promote the inclination to help others, and the moral courage to speak or act on behalf of positive values in the face of potential opposition
-Interactive exercises and activities: students discuss, brainstorm and roleplay bystander responses to varied situations

The cosponsors include Pace e Bene Nonviolence Service NE, NH Peace Action, American Friends Service Committee NH, NH Reparations Working Group
