About the Event

What is Bystander Training?

Bystander Training is a strategy that teaches onlookers to either directly or indirectly insert themselves into harassment incidents, overriding the common instinct to feel frozen or unsure in such situations.  

What is an Active Bystander?

An Active Bystander is a person who takes action or intervenes if they see or hear about harassing behavior, either at that time or afterwards.

Who will benefit?

Everyone.  At some point in our lives, we have or will experience a situation where being an Active Bystander will help de-escalate a sitution safely or provide support to someone in need.
