Bringing in the Bystander

Bringing in the Bystander™ is an interactive prevention workshop that is based on the concept that all community members have a role to play in preventing sexual violence. Student participants learn the importance of speaking out against social norms that support sexual violence, to become aware of and identify potential risks in various situations, to develop empathy and support for survivors, and explore how to safely interrupt or intervene in situations that can lead to sexual violence. 

To receive recognition of completion, you must attend for the full 3 hr session. If you know you will need to arrive late or leave early please choose an alternative date instead.
