Each of us will likely be a bystander witnessing a situation of potential violence. The question is will we notice the red dots that happen around us and choose to do our part – to do green dots? Will we choose to be an active bystander and use the 3Ds – Direct, Delegate, and Distract?
These Pilots chose to intervene, they chose to do something. Watch their stories:
Have you been an active bystander? Have you intervened or proactively communicated that violence just isn’t OK? Tell us your story. Send a quick email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
