TOGETHER - MORE THAN BYSTANDERS  -  Issue 7

 FEBRUARY UPDATE 2016


Yes it's true, the largest most powerful group in a situation of sexism, discrimination, abuse or violence is the bystander, yet 70% of Australians do nothing to help. 

Our Active Bystander Workshops offer skill-building opportunities – helping you to a point of having many options for action with only one wrong answer – and that is 'to do nothing.’
 
Reminder of events coming up:

February 28
– St Thomas' Werribee. Dr Ree Boddé will deliver a homily - 'why violence against women is your business' at the 8: 00 & 9: 30 congregations and the 11.30 Karen congregation 

March 5 –  St Peter’s East Melbourne, 10:00 to 12:00 –  Active Bystander Training Workshop. Workshop covers, what is an active bystander intervention? And, how to safely intervene. Register here  ( Event Cancelled)
