“From Bystander to Upstander” workshop with True Story Theater
Part of Needham Diversity Summit 6.0 – Building Bridges to Understanding
MORE INFO & REGISTRATION
Are you looking to engage effectively in difficult conversations and, perhaps, intervene and support people targeted by bigotry but don’t know how? Or have you ever been the target of demeaning remarks and actions because of how you are perceived?
The cast of True Story Theater will guide the audience through a series of scenarios –that include role-play and self-reflection—and help them become more comfortable with speaking up for themselves and others.
This workshop aims to teach participants how to shift from passive bystanders to active upstanders in an empathetic and respectful way. We can build bridges and be an upstander, too!
Event will be a multi-generational space – open to everyone ages 8 and up!
