Bringing in the Bystander

Applications for BITB are now closed. Check back here for updates.

Bringing in the Bystander™ is an effective in-person, 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 safety interrupt or intervene in situations that can lead to sexual violence.
