Confronting Violence, Intimidation & Harassment
Use proximity (stand close and watch) when you observe any form of intimidation, harassment, or violence against a person of Color by another white person or police officer.
Film any such confrontations.
Shout as a way to try to stop such a confrontation.
Engage White people in conversation about their actions (perhaps focusing on intent v. impact) when you observe or hear about racialized microaggressions.
Physically intervene in confrontations when a person of Color is being intimated, harassed, or the target of violence from a White person or police officer..
Feel comfortable putting your body on the line? Call organizers, Mosques, protestors, and other groups ask if you can be trained to handle their security and absorb threats from the police.
