Help Transform Rape Culture, Host a Screening of The Bystander Moment
Over the past decade, more and more colleges have been moving to implement sexual assault prevention programs. But according to the latest data, more work needs to be done.
According to federally mandated reports released over the past few days, a number of the nation’s colleges and universities have shown an uptick in sexual assaults reported on campus.
If you’re looking for resources to complement the sexual violence prevention efforts on your campus, be sure to check out our bestselling video The Bystander Moment: Transforming Rape Culture at Its Roots with acclaimed educator and author Jackson Katz — a key architect of one of the most widely implemented bystander education approaches in the country.
The Bystander Moment has been earning widespread praise from educators and experts in the field for targeting the gender norms, media narratives, and peer-culture dynamics that continue to feed a culture of silence around sexual violence. We urge you to screen it on your campus to help keep the conversation about sexual violence going.
