Learn to Prevent RAPE: Wed, March 18

Bringing In the Bystander: train-the-trainer workshop

Wed, March 18th, 3pm –
8:30pm, with 30 minute FREE dinner
68th Street Campus, Thomas Hunter 309

Learn this training, so you can hold the workshop yourself. 1 out of 4 women in college will be sexually assaulted at least once, but you can help change that. Bringing in the Bystander program emphasizes that everyone has a role to play in ending violence against women on campus. It uses a community of responsibility model to teach bystanders how to intervene safely & effectively in cases of violence before, during, & after incidents with strangers, acquaintances, or friends. Research shows this form of education to the most effective against intimate partner violence. Contact: or stop by TH 309

Here is an article about the workshop we will learn to conduct:

It should be a great training, with professionals from the field attending, including members of the CUNY-wide sexual-assault policy taskforce. If you didn't know, we are in a historical time because in an effort to create a CUNY-wide policy on sexual assault, a task force has been assembled with CUNY faculty, staff, administration, Public Safety and students. I am also on the taskforce. Our goal is to incorporate this training into the policy, which will affect 450,000 students alone.
