The Right to be Safe: An Upstander & Self Defense Response to Anti-Asian Harassment & Violence

Wednesday, August 4, 2021 (1pm - 2:30pm US/Central)

All AALL members are encouraged to register for the upcoming training.

The Right to be Safe is an interactive workshop that will present a brief history of anti-Asian and xenophobic discrimination in the United States, followed by strategies to fight back against anti-Asian violence. We will discuss barriers to intervening, de-escalation strategies, CAE’s Upstander approach, and self-defense techniques. The workshop is intended both for people of Asian descent and allies.

The Center for Anti-Violence Education works to prevent, disrupt, and heal from hate violence in its communities through educational programs that center the experiences of people most marginalized.
Please register in advance. You will receive a unique link to join the meeting. Registration is limited to 100 members. The session will be recorded and the video will be made available to all AALL membership for a limited time following the event.

This program is offered in collaboration with the Asian American Law Librarians Caucus, RIPS-SIS, and GLL-SIS, and is made possible by a grant from the AALL/Bloomberg Law Continuing Education Grant Program.
