In January 2015, The University of Texas System held a gathering with representatives from the majority of their institutions to discuss a three year grant that would be provided to each university. The grant was designed to help each campus establish a culture of care where bystanders would not stand idly by when trouble reared its ugly head, but rather would choose to intervene for one another.

While most are familiar with the practice of nonviolence, our current cultural climate warrants a better understanding of what it means to actively engage an aggressor while simultaneously de-escalating a potentially violent situation. We at Sala Diaz want to keep our community safe. On Saturday August 26th, we will host an Active Bystander Training Session led by the UTSA chapter of initiative stated above.

From the presenters:

«The Beaks up. Speak up. bystander intervention initiative at UTSA provides resources to support a community of prosocial bystanders. Through our initiative and its efforts, we hope to minimize the impact of potential harm that threatens our community members' quality of life. Our efforts include knowledge-, awareness-, and skill-building activities that promote prosocial behaviors across a variety of risk areas.»
