Six tips to avoid being a bystander when witnessing a racist attack

With racist and discriminatory acts on the rise since Donald Trump's election, Barnard Center For Research On Women and members of Project NIA created a video that offers six simple tips for what to do if you witness a verbal or physical assault. Having concrete steps in mind will hopefully stop you from just being a bystander. One important thing to remember is that the police can often escalate situations involving people of color and trans folks. The video advises that unless you've been specifically asked to do so by the victim, avoid calling the police.
