BE AN ACTIVE BYSTANDER.
Intervene when you see or hear sexual violence. That means stopping bullying or harassment when you see it, and not participating in text message or online chats that demean or make fun of someone else.
STOP SEXUAL VIOLENCE BEFORE IT BEGINS. BUILD HEALTHY RELATIONSHIPS.
Understanding what makes up healthy relationships, with friends, partners, peers and adults, is important to preventing sexual violence from happening in the first place.
A healthy relationship is based on mutual respect, compromise and communication. It allows for partners to talk openly about their feelings and thoughts, supporting each other’s happiness. Partners listen to each other, respecting each other’s thoughts, feelings, decisions, privacy and boundaries.
