Making a Difference - Introducing the Bystander

A bystander is an individual who is present when an event takes place but is not directly involved, this could be you. The majority of violent crimes are committed by an acquaintance or someone the victim knows well. Given these circumstances, it’s important to recognize the role bystanders can have in helping and how your actions can have a huge impact and in some situations, you may have the opportunity to interrupt a harmful situation from happening. Please consider reviewing this bystander resource from the Hollaback Program.
