Bystander Intervention for Communities of Color

This webinar was held on Janaury 12, 2021


Bystanders play a critical role in the prevention of sexual and relationship violence. They are often the largest group of people involved – outnumbering both the perpetrators and the victims. Bystanders can have a range of involvement in assaults. A person or persons may be aware that a specific assault is happening or will happen, they may see an assault or potential assault in progress, or they may have knowledge that an assault has already occurred. Regardless of how close to the incident they are, bystanders have the power stop assaults and to get help for people who have been victimized.


Bystander Intervention Programs are not once-size-fits all. There exists a gap in bystander intervention programs that speak to the needs of people of color on campuses. This workshop unveils a new bystander intervention program, BOUT That Life, tailored specifically for communities of color at predominantly white institutions (PWIs) as well as historically black college and university (HBCU) campuses. This program can be adapted to fit non-campus organizations that wish to do targeted primary prevention training for African Americans.
