“Step In Stand Up is a great reminder that as active bystanders, we can Step In to prevent acts of violence and harassment, and we can Stand Up for survivors. We can protect ourselves and one another with steps like planning ahead, using the buddy system and asking for consent. Throughout our history, Aggies have stepped up to serve, achieving remarkable things. We can continue that tradition of service with safe practices, bystander intervention and survivor support – and we can do it, because we’re Aggies.”
STAND Up is a free professional development opportunity that involves a 3.5-hour Trauma-Informed Care Training. Participants who attend this training become designated as trained allies who are prepared to have conversations about the prevention of and response to power-based personal violence.
