At Humber we work to challenge negative behaviours, attitudes and beliefs about sexual and gender-based violence. By doing so, we hope to reinforce Humber’s commitment to student safety and promote a campus culture in which there is ZERO tolerance for sexual and gender-based violence.
You can be part of this important work in the following ways:
- Share our #WeDontStandBy video with your peers, colleagues and students
- Take the #WeDontStandBy pledge
- Promote our events, including 'Can I Kiss You?', 'Take Back the Night' and our 'Consensual Lemonade Stand'
- Invite the Consent Peer Educators to a class, an event or initiative
- Attend Bringing in the Bystander Training or request a workshop for your class, club, group

'CONSENT: IS LIKE A CUP OF TEA' - (Video)

BRINGING IN THE BYSTANDER (Program)
The program teaches bystanders how to safely intervene in instances where an incident may be occurring or where there may be risk. Through in-depth discussion of issues and role-playing of common violence scenarios, participants come to understand how they play a part in proactively preventing sexual and relationship violence, how they can help survivors get the help and support they need, and how they can contribute to the creation of a campus climate that reflects a commitment to safety for all.
