Male Peers Make a Difference in Preventing Sexual Violence

- Monday, August 18, 2014

A recent story from NPR highlights the power of peer groups in preventing campus rape.  In particular, the article discusses the success of a bystander intervention program that encourages male peers to take action to prevent sexual violence. As the story stated, the overwhelming majority of men don't commit rape; when they speak out they can make a real difference in their communities. In the same way, our goal is for the See the Signs, Speak out program to empower individuals to intervene as bystanders to stop sexual violence before it happens. Consider taking our online courses so you can help to make a difference too.

Don't stand by while you could be the key in preventing abuse. Please use our materials, take our courses, and encourage others to do the same.
