‘Who Are You’ is a ground-breaking, multi-media campaign that focuses on what each and every one of us can do to stop a possible sexual assault from happening. It offers a free toolkit that uses group exercises and a short film to educate young people about the prevention of sexual violence, being a responsible bystander and ethical decision making.

Recognizing that sexual violence can have an enormous negative impact on people's lives, the program asks us to consider “Who am I” and what would I do? It offers concrete ideas about actions anyone can take that can help keep everyone safe. The theme of the campaign and short film was collaboratively developed and was informed by Professor Moira Carmody’s (University of Western Sydney, Australia) research and the resulting Sex & Ethics: The sexual ethics education program for young people (2009). The program focuses on sexual violence prevention using ethical decision making strategies and the concept of bystander intervention.

 

The tool kit is free and downloadable on the website. Guidelines for facilitating discussion, group exercises and viewing of the film are included in the 3 module tool kit along with learning objectives, pre and post surveys, definitions of sexual assault and consent, how to be an ethical bystander, and more.
