Identity

Your identity shapes how you engage with the world around you, a fact that can inform your level of comfort in speaking up when problematic situations arise.
On one level, you are accessing the world through your own lens, unique to you. However, the groups with which we identify, along with the power and privilege we occupy, are part of our lens and shape the way we experience the world.
As we explore the concept of bystander intervention together, remember that although we all have obstacles to overcome, your safety and self-care are of the greatest importance.
