  3. Free Workshop: How to be an Active Bystander

    About:
    Join us for a free presentation about our campaign It Takes Just One and how we can help you become an active bystander.

    It is our mission to educate participants on proper intervention methods when faced with a family or friend who is becoming radicalized. This training can also be useful for bystanders faced with other situations such as bullying, abuse, alcoholism, discrimination, and so on, as the warning signs are very similar.
