Image of students with ONE2GETHER Bystander Pledge in text

I make this pledge to honor the people I care about:

  • Because I know sexual assault, relationship and stalking violence impacts the lives of those I love and the lives of those others love;
  • Because I know reducing the number of victims requires a broad social change as well as specific individual acts and choices;
  • Because I know I am a part of establishing what is acceptable in our community; and
  • Because I know others will observe my choices and follow my lead

I pledge to:

  • Listen to, believe and support all people who have experienced any form of personal violence;
  • Examine my own values and attitudes and change anything I may be doing that contributes to violent behavior;
  • Pay attention to and take action when I see, hear or know someone needs help and find a way to safely intervene in a situation that has the potential to lead to a positive outcome;
  • Regularly and visibly endorse the values of safety and intolerance of all forms of violence; and
  • Encourage those in my life to take responsibility
