  • Talk with friends, family, or one of our Prevention Peer Educators about healthy relationships and consent
  • Post an article or video about a positive bystander intervention story on social media
  • Share a quote about standing up for others
  • Discuss unhealthy dating behaviors in movies and TV shows
  • Support survivors!

There are so many ways to get involved! If you have any questions or want to learn more, reach out to Bernadette Ramsden at or one of our Prevention Peer Educators!
