Bringing in the Bystander is a workshop for students that strives to educate and empower the UMass Lowell community on how to safely and effectively intervene in cases where sexual assault is occurring or has potential to occur.
The workshop focuses on a community approach to identifying behaviors on a continuum of violence, and generates a commitment to intervention before, during and after an incident occurs. It emphasizes the message that "everyone in the community has a role to play in ending sexual violence."
