Unifor members share strategies to build empathy through bystander intervention

A group of Unifor members marked Human Rights Day 2020 with the first online bystander intervention training offered by the union.

The group training went beyond intervention in conflict, to craft a discussion about building more caring communities in the face of structural oppression and inequality.

Trainer Rajean Hoilett took the participants through real life scenarios and provided practical advice on how to not be a bystander to any injustices towards people, but instead to understand ones active role and place in their communities.
