#CountMeIn Call to Action - Week 21: Intervene and Create Safe Environments

week 21 2018 share graphic

Rape culture normalizes violence against women and girls. This week's Call to Action reminds us we have the agency to act mindfully against these norms, and to fiercely support survivors. The resources below show how you can be an informed bystander and intervene in difficult conversations and situations.

Intervene and create safe environments.

Interrupt situations in which consent for sexual or physical contact has not, or cannot, be given. Make it clear that jokes about rape or domestic violence are unacceptable. Hold perpetrators accountable for their actions. Believe and support survivors in every context.
