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.
  • Speak up when you see someone being assaulted or otherwise in danger--call the police.
  • Watch out for your friends.
  • Tell your friends that nonconsensual sex is just wrong.
  • Tell your friends that hurting an intimate partner or stalking them is wrong.
  • Talk to your RA, your coach, your teacher about situations you find uncomfortable or dangerous./li>
We are all responsible for ending sexual violence, dating violence, and stalking.
