Join CAMS and the Center for Anti-Violence Education for an interactive upstander workshop, Right to Be Safe: Addressing Anti-Asian Hate.
An Upstander is a person who:
1. Takes action when they see an act of intolerance.
2. Speaks or acts in support of an individual or cause, intervening on behalf of a person being attacked or bullied.
3. Actively works to create an anti-oppressive world.
The Upstander program is communal education open to anyone looking for interpersonal tools to prevent, disrupt and help heal from violence in their communities. Workshops are interactive, addressing a range of topical concerns. Participants walk away with a greater understanding of how to center humanity across identity groups and operationalize skills like de-escalation and active bystander interventions.
Families are welcome to attend together. We are asking for a mimimum donation of $10 per family for this event to raise funds for the CAMS-CAIPA Community Service Fund which helps support essential NYC based community organizations and programs that serve our community.
