We want people to get to know the facts on harassment hate crime and sexual violence.

The campaign uses a variety of activities to help people explore the issues and develop skills and confidence to safely take action.  The purpose of activities is to counteract the phenomenon known as the bystander effect. We want people and communities to move from being passive bystanders who do nothing, to becoming active bystanders who take action.

Don't be a bystander Speak Up! Stand Up!  Call it out and report it.

Causes 

Acts of harassment hate crime and sexual violence often start with negative attitudes, beliefs and stereotypes about other people. These beliefs are cultivated through exposure and repeated reinforcement by those around them and they can form prejudices. These prejudices can cause biased behaviour and potentially more serious acts of discrimination hate and violence. We want people to notice potentially problematic situations. To do this we will explore different topics that relate to:

  • Ageism
  • Disabalism
  • Homophobia
  • Racism
  • Religious Hate
  • Sexism
  • Transphobia

Terminology

We will explore definitions, terminology and experiences including micro-aggressions, discrimination, harassment, hate crime and sexual violence.
