Bystander Intervention Training

Nikita Ragjopal ’17 writes in:

Become an active bystander by registering for Wesleyan’s bystander intervention training! 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 difficult 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 training features two distinct and separate tracks: sexual violence prevention and alcohol use intervention. The next training is Monday, September 19, 2016. Register here!

Date: Monday, September 19
Time: 6:00pm – 9:00pm
Place: TBA; participants will receive instructions after signing up

I highly recommend everyone attend this event. I certainly will be there. Courtesy of Jack Spira ’16:

I would like to invite all students on campus to attend a Forum on Sexual Assault on Monday, April 21st, at 8 PM. The Forum will cover:

  • Social Spaces and Greek Life
  • Survivor Support
  • Reporting/Judicial Policies

Along with those three topics, all attendees will be given basic information in Bystander Intervention Training, one of the few tools that we can all use to help stop sexual violence on our campus. The goal of the Forum is to come up with solutions and idea on how we, as a community, can help support survivors and prevent further sexual violence from happening anywhere in our community. To that end, members of the administration will be present, but this event is truly for students to get together and talk about how we can all help each other in a non-confrontational way.
