Bystander Action

Shifting the culture that drives violence against women through small, courageous actions in daily life

A deep shift is needed to address the culture underpinning men’s violence against women and prevent it from occurring. As Christians, we are compelled by Christ’s love to shift this culture. However, culture change can seem big and overwhelming.

That is where the active bystander approach comes in. It is proving to be a powerful tool enabling individuals and communities to begin right where they are to create culture change.

This resource explores what bystander action is, why and how to take it, and how a church can foster and support bystander action. It is designed for personal reflection or facilitating a group discussion.
