Taking responsible action to help people

TAB is a skill-building process that helps participants know when they are bystanders, to analyze situations, and evaluate consequences. TAB gives bystanders the competencies to create action plans in the moment of need or later. Active bystandership means taking responsible action to help people in need, instead of remaining passive and becoming complicit. It does not mean aggression against the harm doer. TAB is also about responding positively to helpful behaviors, and engaging with people beyond your normal circle.

2.5-Hour TAB Workshops: Creating Safe, Inclusive Communities

TAB workshops are sponsored throughout the United States by community coalitions, libraries, LGBTQ groups, social justice and multicultural organizations, houses of worship (temples, mosques, churches), Human Rights Committees, social service agencies, substance abuse prevention task forces, and businesses.

The 2.5-hour TAB workshop can be provided in person or virtually. The online TAB is conducted synchronously by two trainers. Both in-person and the online TAB workshops are interactive and include activities, story sharing, small break-out group exercises, and large group discussions.

The minimum number of workshop participants is 10 people. TAB is appropriate for anyone 12 years old and older.
