Uniting in Action: Creating a Culture to Prevent Sexual Violence

Developed in collaboration with high school students, educators, and practitioners, Uniting in Action: Creating a Culture to Prevent Sexual Violence builds on the knowledge of participants to empower them in their role in shaping community responses to sexual violence. In focusing on the role of bystanders, workshop participants build knowledge to recognize sexually inappropriate and violent behaviors, develop empathy for survivors, and hone skills to support prosocial bystander intervention.
