Bystander intervention has emerged as a popular and powerful strategy for the prevention of sexual and domestic violence. This web conference will further national dialogue on the strategy, with a particular focus on social justice. It will highlight new publications about bystander intervention from the National Sexual Violence Resource Center, as well as provide examples of successful integration of a social justice framework into the strategy.
After the session, participants will be able to:
1) Explain how bystander intervention strategies contribute to the prevention of sexual and domestic violence 2) Identify at least 3 resources to assist in implementing a bystander intervention strategy to prevent sexual and domestic violence 3) Articulate how to integrate a social justice approach into a bystander intervention strategy to prevent sexual and domestic violence
This year's theme, Coming Together to Strengthen Campus Communities, embodies the vision of both Security On Campus, Inc. and of NCSAM-- that administration and students will work together to raise awareness and create change, that universities will partner with national and local organizations to support and educate students and staff, and that all parties will come to the table to share knowledge and resources to build strong, aware, and safer campuses.
Since SOC’s inception, it is evident that campus safety is most successful when the community encourages collaboration between campus staff, administration, students, parents, and community groups. National Campus Safety Awareness Month was built on the principle of students, staff, and parents collaborating to raise awareness about safety during September.
