AAPI Upstander Training

Sunday, August 14, 2022 - 3:00pm to 5:00pm

Montclair Stands Against Hate: Upstander Training at St. James on August 14th, 3-5pm

Bias incidents against the Asian American community in New Jersey rose 87% in 2021, reaching a historic high. Together with incidents affecting the Black, Jewish, LGBTQ, and other marginalized communities, total bias incidents in NJ increased 29% in 2021. There is need for Community Safety Programs rooted in mutual protection. On August 14 at St. James, join AAPI Montclair and Nonviolent Peaceforce for an in-person training to learn how we can stand up and protect our communities. Participants will be provided with tools to de-escalate a situation and to strengthen their situational awareness. RSVP and learn more at tinyurl.com/MontclairAgainstHate.
