The Tennessee Bystander Project is a collaboration between the Tennessee Coalition to End Domestic & Sexual Violence and the Tennessee Department of Health.
The goal of the project is to provide communities across Tennessee with a variety of resources on bystander intervention. You will find printable materials and logos which are freely available for community members, groups, and organizations to use in implementing public awareness campaigns.
Also included are support materials for conducting evidence-informed presentations and workshops on bystander intervention. The support materials include a facilitation guide, sample power points, and general resources on bystander intervention.
Sexual Assault Prevention Committee
The Sexual Assault Prevention Committee (SAPC) is a multi-disciplinary committee created in partnership with the state of Tennessee Department of Health. The SAPC was created to help expand and lead primary prevention efforts to reduce and ultimately end sexual violence in the state of Tennessee. The SAPC includes Coalition staff, victims advocates, university staff and faculty, and Department of Health staff from across Tennessee. The SAPC meets bi-monthly in Nashville to work on special projects guiding prevention efforts across the state. These projects include expanding the Safe Bar program, creating a College Consortium for the state of Tennessee, creating online prevention trainings, and helping to connect student activists with support and resources in their communities.
The SAPC is seeking engaged community members, especially students, to join the committee! Email Emily Kessinger at for more information.
