How Empowering People Could Lead To A Safer Community – Upstander Training

Upstander Training aims to empower people to take action and step in, deescalate, and prevent bullying. Carlyn Cowen of Chinese-American Planning Council talks about how this training can be utilized to assist vulnerable communities like Asian, LGBTQIA+, Black & Brown, and Indigenous. Carlyn is an advocate for the Upstander Training because “when we take care of each other the entire community is safer.” Interview by HMM correspondent Aileen Javier.
