WE Speak, WE Stand: Community of Care Bystander Intervention Program

Scott “Beta Porch” Elias ’14 writes in to let you know that:

the brothers of Beta, DKE and Psi U are partnering up with WesWell and the Peer Health Advocate Team Leaders to sponsor a “We Speak, We Stand: Community of Care” bystander intervention program this Tuesday at 5:15 at Beta.

This open event

aims to create a campus that is actively engaged in the prevention of sexual assault and advocates for the responsible use of alcohol. The goal of the program is to empower bystanders to intervene in high risk situations involving alcohol use and sexual assault. Empowered bystanders create a safer community by standing up and speaking out when they witness situations that could potentially harm the health and safety of others. Intervening with peers can be challenging for a number of reasons and training will provide you with the skills to move from inaction to action and intervene safely and effectively.

Sounds like a worthy endeavor.
