Bystander Intervention Conference Inspires Attendees

Conference Logo v2MVP convened more than 250 people in Boston, MA for Bystander Intervention: from its roots to the road ahead. This conference was the first global gathering of experts, activists and practitioners to discuss and share their respective bystander intervention experiences. The conference focused on bystander intervention in preventing gender violence while exploring a range of social, structural and political dynamics that are seamlessly transferable to bystander efforts addressing other social problems.

Leading experts in the bystander intervention movement discussed a range of issues, such as men and women working together; designing effective bystander initiatives in diverse socioeconomic and racial/ethnic environments; working with organized athletics and Greeks on college campuses; bystander pedagogy; and efforts to design comprehensive bystander initiatives that address gender violence but also bullying, gay-bashing and other significant social problems.
