Bystander Intervention Training
Friday, August 18 at 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.

Many Muslims and allies have been asking about the role bystanders can play in protecting targets of hate crimes since the election. The recent tragedy in Portland, where two heroes were killed while protecting two women who were being attacked, has really brought that question to the forefront again.

About Kit Bonson.
Kit has been an activist and organizer for over 35 years, primarily for reproductive rights and for peace and justice issues. In 2010, she was one of the co-founders of the Montgomery County Civil Rights Coalition (MCCRC), in response to FBI raids on Midwest activists. In the past six years, MCCRC has been fighting against “security theater” in the DC Metro system, false claims of “creeping Sharia,” indefinite detention of U.S. citizens, and attempts to block the right to free assembly, among other civil liberties concerns.
