Be the hero (safely)
What can you do when you become aware of social conflict near you?
If you don't feel able to intervene, it's natural. Stay safe and do what you can.
Respond directly and calmly to a perpetrator, perhaps by using an “I” statement and/or calling out the behaviour - EG I feel uncomfortable when you speak like that or Mate, that's harassment.
From pretending you recognise the target, to barging in for a selfie, there are many creative ways to diffuse an unwanted encounter.
From security guards to barkeepers, many have the capacity to support. Choose a specific individual and communicate clearly and calmly.
There are many amazing ways to intervene, and it can feel great. To ask about positive intervention training, email email@example.com
