At baptism, Lutheran Christians promise publicly to “love all people following the example of Jesus' and to 'strive for justice and peace in all the earth”. Other major religions also value protecting others from harm. When we observe threatening or harassing behavior, how do we respond? What would you do? This training gives participants tools to build confidence in speaking up and acting to protect others, and promotes positive ways to impact our communities.
