YOU Power to change the world in small everyday ways
Domestic and sexual violence are gender-based issues of power and control – one person has power and control over another. Research has shown the idea that “everyone has a role to play” to stop violence and abuse of older adults is meaningless unless individuals understand the specific role they can play. This talk will describe how the It’s Not Right! bystander approach asks audiences of all ages to rethink power and privilege from the perspective of YOU Power. YOU Power suggests that we are powerful beings in the world, able to make a big difference with small actions that add up to social change.
