Episode #1 - What is an upstander?

Update: 2022-05-01


The Harmony Project brings together local service providers working towards ending sexual violence in our community.  Our third season follows along with Sexual Violence Awareness Month which happens each May in Alberta.  This year our theme is “Becoming Upstanders”. 

  An upstander is someone who recognizes actions, attitudes and beliefs that normalize violence and stands up to and challenges them.  We believe everyone has a role in making our community safe. Knowing how to take a stand against violence and harassment is one way we can create change; together, we can create a Bow Valley that is free from sexualized violence. 
In this episode we speak with Rachel Huh from the Centre for Sexuality.  Rachel talks us though what tools someone could use as an active and engaged bystander as well as the prevalence of sexual violence culture and how we can shift it to a culture of nurturing and kindness.
