HERSANA CIC is the leading gender-based violence support service providing advice, support and advocacy to Black women and girls who have experienced any form of gender-based violence. Their mission is to create wholistic, gender-specialist, culturally specific and trauma-informed safe spaces for Black women and girls, as well as campaign to eradicate violence against women and girls in all its forms.
They are currently working in partnership with Survivors Network offering bystander training across Sussex. FREE bystanders training aims to help services, businesses, and the public in Sussex to #DotheRightThing by feeling more confident in recognising and challenging misogynistic behaviour in their everyday lives.
The 90 minute sessions are open to everyone [aged 16 and above] and will enable participants to:
1) Recognise sexual harassment and misogynistic behaviour and understand how it contributes to unsafe public spaces for certain groups of people
2) Understand the impact of sexual harassment and misogynistic behaviour
3) Learn and practise tools and techniques to challenge this behaviour in a safe way.
