Bystander intervention getting more traction!

If you’ve taken the bus today, you’ve probably seen us on the cover of Ottawa’s Metro.

Thank you to Graham Lanktree from Metro Ottawa for focusing on our work and our bystander intervention approach, rather than our supposed conflict with City Hall.

In light of this article, we’ve gotten three more stories through social media, all involving people who were able to escape a situation with the help of a bystander.

Bystander intervention is effective! It’s not impossible!

Thank you to everyone who has continued to support our work; those who refused to be silenced; to those who are covering our stories and doing their research.

Reminder: Our Open Forum will be held on May 15, 6:30pm, Bronson Centre and it will include space to share your story and space to brainstorm a community response to harassment and assault on transit.
