Anna Nasset, Stand Up: Survivor Story and Bystander Intervention

5:30 to 7 p.m. March 20 | Nebraska Union Swanson Auditorium

Through engaging exercises and conversations, participants will look deeper into consent and appropriate behavior (especially around stalking), learn how to be an active bystander, and assist those who have been sexually assaulted or who are being stalked.

Anna also shares parts of her own story as a survivor to highlight the effective bystanders in her life. Attendees will walk away with a deeper understanding of how stalking affects the victim on every level, and a tool kit of resources to use for themselves or to help others.

This event is FREE, and while intended for students, faculty and staff are welcome to attend.

Can’t make this event? Join Anna for Slow Motion Homicide: Stalking Case Study from 2 to 3:30 p.m. March 21.
