Project Pay Attention (@ProjectPayAttn)

Safe spaces are shrinking because technology keeps us all connected, all the time. Harassment and bullying, or what sociologist Robert Faris calls “social combat,” oppresses the victim or target, but also negatively affects the perpetrator and the witness. Sexual orientation, gender identity, race, class, nationality, size, ability, and religious beliefs should not be grounds for social combat.

Research shows that 77% of bullying incidents have no one who intervenes. Yet the same research tells us that if you have a friend who intervenes, you are more likely to intervene yourself.

What can you do to help?
