In this seminar, Lead Instructor Nick Masi will be joined by Shawna Potter to offer a seminar that will give you the tools and confidence to stand up for yourself and for others.
Shawna is an activist, musician, and the author of “Making Spaces Safer: A Guide to Giving Harassment the Boot Wherever You Work, Play, and Gather,” a guide for anyone looking to make their community more fun and inclusive.
The first half of the seminar is dedicated to the 5 D's of bystander intervention. This is a particular toolset that you can use to help a family member, friend, co-worker, or even stranger in a situation where they are the target of disrespectful behavior or harassment.
In the second half of the seminar, we will learn ways to keep ourself, and the person we are trying to help, safe in the case that the enounter turns physical.
No experience required.
This seminar is for ages 14+
Cost: Free for FDKM members; $25 for general public
