    COOP for Nonprofits – Training Webinar

    The COVID-19 pandemic and wildfires have shown the general public that nonprofits can adeptly continue many of our essential operations and meet community needs despite incredible disruption. Some people may think that nonprofits figured out how to magically respond to emergencies, but the truth is that the strongest nonprofits had well developed emergency and continuity of operations plans already in place.

    This course will look at key planning elements that should be included
    in your organization’s continuity planning such as
    * Identifying essential services
    * Planning for essential administrative functions
    * Succession planning
    * Organizational and program inter-dependencies

    Anti-Asian/American and xenophobic harassment are on the rise across the US – and the world. In this virtual workshop hosted on Zoom, and co-sponsored by Asian Americans Advancing Justice (AAJC) and Hollaback!, we’ll learn how you can intervene effectively as a bystander without ever compromising your safety.

    This session offers translations and simultaneous interpretation in Chinese (中文)! Both Mandarin (普通話) and Cantonese () available.

    The one-hour, interactive training will teach you Hollaback!’s 5D’s of bystander intervention methodology. We’ll start by talking about the types of disrespect that Asian and Asian American folks are facing right now — from microaggressions to violence — using a tool we call the “spectrum of disrespect.” You’ll learn what to look for and the positive impact that bystander intervention has on individuals and communities. We’ll talk through five strategies for intervention: distract, delegate, document, delay, and direct; and how to prioritize your own safety while intervening. We’ll have time at the end for practice, and you’ll leave feeling more confident intervening the next time you see Anti-Asian/American harassment online or in person.
