Prevent violence or sexual assault

The term ‘bystander intervention’ is used to describe a situation where someone who isn’t directly involved steps in to change the outcome. Stepping in may give the person you’re concerned about a chance to get to a safe place or leave the situation. You don’t have to be a hero or even stand out from the crowd to make a big difference in someone’s life.

Take steps to protect someone who may be at risk in a way that fits your comfort level.
