Screen The Bystander Moment with Jackson Katz this Fall
Sexual assault remains a huge problem on America’s campuses, especially during the first few months of the school year – a period that’s sadly come to be known as “the red zone.”
But too many universities have done only the bare minimum in response and have failed to implement effective mandatory gender violence prevention education and training programs.
If you’re looking for resources to either fill this void or help bolster the sexual assault prevention programming that’s being offered on your campus during the new semester, we highly recommend our acclaimed new video with leading gender violence prevention educator Jackson Katz, a key architect of one of the most innovative and widely implemented bystander approaches in the country.
The Bystander Moment: Transforming Rape Culture at Its Roots brings Katz’s insights to life, taking a deep dive into the cultural and gender norms, media narratives, and peer-culture dynamics that breed sexual violence while offering students a practical and empowering blueprint for disrupting the culture of abuse.
“A terrific, timely, and necessary video … needs to be screened in classrooms and communities far and wide.”
— Jean Kilbourne, Ed.D., creator of the award-winning Killing Us Softly video series
“The Bystander Moment is an eloquent, passionate, and accessible account of how to transform the culture that produces abusive behavior.”
