The 5Ds of Bystander Intervention

Being targeted with harassment because of your race, sex, religion, color, gender, size, orientation, disability, age, or origin is demoralizing and can impact our lives in many ways. But being targeted while surrounded by bystanders who see what is happening, but then do nothing, can make us feel even more isolated and alone. 

 

It doesn’t have to be that way.

 

You can make a choice to actively and visibly take a stand against harassment. The 5Ds are different methods you can use to support someone who’s being harassed, emphasize that harassment is not okay, and demonstrate to people in your life that they too have the power to make our communities and workplaces safer.
