The Goshen Community Relations Commission put out a request for proposals for a workshop for CRC members and elected officials to learn about the need for bystander training.

Bystander training is based on social science principles that prepare individuals or groups to address a situation of verbal, physical or any type of harassment. A bystander is anyone who observes a situation; and active bystander realizes what’s going on and chooses how to respond.

The CRC will make a final decision on the chosen trainer on August 8, 2019 or on September 10, 2019 at the latest, both dates of which are the CRC’s regularly scheduled monthly meetings.
