Being an Upstander: Meaningful Support for Survivors

Wednesday, October 20
12:00-12:45 p.m. CST
Speakers: Kia Whittier, Megan Rae
Moderated by: Patricia Cumbie

When people suspect someone they love is being abused or is hurting from trauma, they often don’t know what to do, but want to be helpful in meaningful ways. What survivors say they need for support may surprise you, and the ways you can be an “upstander” instead of “bystander” is doable and meaningful. This is a conversation that will inform you about the dynamics of gender-based violence, and can aid your understanding of how to best respond.
