Join JVP-Bay Area for a Bystander Training led by CAIR, America's largest Muslim civil liberties and advocacy organization working to protect civil liberties, empower American Muslims, and build coalitions that promote justice and mutual understanding. Bystander Trainings offer us practical tools for enacting solidarity in the moment, nonviolently: putting our beliefs into practice, to defend and protect one another. 

During the training, participants will learn about the history and principles of nonviolence and practice specific de-escalation techniques in a variety of scenarios. While learning practical skills, we'll build our political analysis, learn about various organizing efforts in our community, and connect with different ways to become active against Islamophobia.
