A bystander, or witness, is someone who sees a situation but may or may not know what to do, may think others will act or may be afraid to do something. Bystander education programs teach potential witnesses safe and positive ways that they can act to prevent or intervene when there is a risk for sexual violence. The presentation is to teach bystanders to act more responsibly.
There are two sessions:
Session A: 9:45 a.m. - 11:00 a.m.
Session B: 11:30 a.m. - 12:45 p.m.
Presenter: Jessica Ritter, Victim Services Advocate, Survivors Inc.
