We Speak We Stand Bystander Intervention Training

From WesWell:

WE Speak, WE Stand aims to create a community that is actively engaged in the prevention of sexual assault, relationship violence 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, sexual assault and relationship violence.

Empowered bystanders make the campus community safer 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.

The first training, February 9th, 10am-2pm, features two distinct and separate tracks: sexual assault prevention and alcohol use intervention.

Register by 12 noon on February 6th.
