 What Can I Do to Prevent Sexual Violence, Dating Violence, and Stalking?

  • Don't be a bystander.  Shatter the silence.  Speak up.

  • You can speak up when you see someone being given too much alcohol or other drugs.
  • You can speak up when you see someone being assaulted or otherwise in danger--call the police.
  • You can watch out for your friends.
  • You can tell your friends that nonconsensual sex is just wrong.
  • You can tell your friends that hurting an intimate partner or stalking them is wrong.
  • You can talk to your RA, your coach, your teacher about situations you find uncomfortable or dangerous. 
We are all responsible for ending sexual violence, dating violence, and stalking.
