RRLC Webinar: Prevention in Action – Hate Crimes, De-Escalation, and Bystander Intervention

February 8 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm EST

With hateful speech and actions on the rise, it’s important that library staff learn how to recognize, interrupt, and de-escalate conflict and hate crimes in order to keep our libraries and communities safe. This webinar — led by trainers from the Arab American Association of New York and Malikah — will introduce library staff tools to de-escalate a hate incident and create safe library spaces. The Arab American Association of New York’s Hate Crimes Prevention Training focuses on combating the rise in hate crimes through education, providing community members with the tools needed to protect themselves, and equipping community members with preventative measures and resources to report a hate crime. Malikah’s Bystander Intervention Training focuses on teaching the five D’s of intervention and how we can all foster a safer, more inclusive environment. The goal of this webinar is to give us all the tools we need to be a part of the solution to defend dignity and inspire change in our communities — to put prevention in action.

Presenters: Maryam Khaldi is the Coalition Organizer at Arab American Association of NY. Deena Hadhoud is the Director of Program and Operations at Malikah.
