Bystander Mobilization

bystander mobilization

Bystanders can play a critical role in preventing and de-escalating violence – if they are motivated to get involved.

This graphic describes the components of Vistelar Group’s training program to mobilize bystanders to adopt a “Protector” mindset and stand up for others.

Bystanders need to be taught how to take and give perspective and do an assessment if there is a need to act and if it is safe to act. Then, they need to learn the steps for protecting others from violence and their two options for intervention (which are detailed in the respective graphics).
