Don’t be a passive witness

The UBC Thunderbird football team and the university’s Access and Diversity office have partnered with the BC Lions and the Ending Violence Association of BC (EVA) for their Be More Than A Bystander campaign—a campaign to end violence against women. The athletes have gone through training and instead of staying mute while they witness harmful conversations or acts, they’re prepared to speak up.

“When students leave UBC, we want them to feel confident in speaking out against injustice,” says CJ Rowe, Diversity Advisor – Women for Access and Diversity.

More details on the campaign can be found here.
