The Your Life is My Life Bystander Intervention and Prevention Program through the Alliance of
Local Service Organizations (ALSO) provides an opportunity for members of the theatre
community to actively engage in safely preventing and ending violence along with encouraging
individuals to practice accountability. The training provides interactive opportunities for
participants to consider what safety means and allows for imagining what a safer environment
could look like at theaters and other settings.
The workshop offers practical prevention and intervention strategies in a scenario-based
curriculum that covers:
● The many forms violence can take;
● Techniques for intervening; and
● Opportunities for skill-building and practice.
The mission of the Alliance of Local Service Organizations (ALSO) is to work in partnership with
people who are living in risk of violence, to promote safer homes and streets. For more

Attendees must be available to attend both 90 minute sessions. This workshop is free but space is limited. Zoom details will be sent out prior to the workshop.
