The Coalition for Peace Action (CFPA) is co-sponsoring Bystander Intervention Training: Non-Violent Tactics for Disarming Hate at Labyrinth Books (122 Nassau Street, Princeton, NJ) on Monday March 27 at 6:00 PM. Free and open to the public. Click here for more information on the event.
Participants in this 2-hour interactive workshop will learn to identify, intervene and de-escalate potentially hostile situations before they turn violent, applying simple but effective tactics rooted in principles of non-violence. Using methods taught by the Montgomery County (MD) Civil Rights Coalition, including interactive lecture, discussion and a series of role-play scenarios, participants will learn and practice non-violent de-escalation tactics with immediate and broad applicability in our troubled times.
The workshop will be co-facilitated by Stacy Small-Lorenz, PhD and Marie Smith, JD, MEd, co-organizers of the Women’s March on Washington-Maryland Chapter.
