We are excited to announce the launch of another prototype from Shift Lab 2.0: The Active Bystander Resource!
For anyone who has witnessed an incident of racial or sexual harassment in a public place, this handy guide gives you tips on how to respond. All these stories are Edmonton stories but these incidents could be from anywhere. Based on feedback from the Sexual Assault Centre of Edmonton, Sisters Dialogue, Somali-Canadian Education and Rural Development Organization, Hollaback and members of the local BIPOC community, this resource aims to help those who want to make a difference.
