The BITB workshop focuses on learning how to be an active bystander and prevent interpersonal violence. Participants will engage in discussion of sexual violence, explore real life case examples and discuss how to identify sexual violence when it is happening. Additionally, participants will look at strategies to act and prevent violence from taking place. This workshop helps to put into perspective the significance of sexual violence in our communities and how increasing our awareness, and ability to work as an ally, can make a difference.
