Sexual Misconduct/Relationship Violence & Intervention


Sexual violence, relationship violence, sexual harassment and bullying are coercive behaviors and are supported by patterns of disrespect and peer pressure.  Working together we can change these patterns with Bystander Intervention.  As a responsible bystander, you can help us to promote a culture of profound respect for the dignity of each person.  By understanding this role and being aware of problematic situations, we can all be effective proponents for a safer community.
