Are you a Courageous Bystander? Have you ever heard a sexist or homophobic joke and wished you had confronted it? Witnessed someone name-calling or hitting another person? Seen a woman passed out drunk in a room at a house party, then a man goes in and closes the door? Were you left with the nagging feeling that someone should have intervened…yet getting involved felt too risky? A “Courageous Bystander” is someone who takes an active role in promoting a respectful environment, or who takes action to safely and responsibly interfere with abusive behaviors, statements, or attitudes. This interactive program helps participants learn ways to be a courageous bystander and possibly save someone from victimization and trauma.
