A “culture of violence” is a community’s complex web of beliefs, actions and customs which condone and encourage violence. This culture impacts our community and because of this, we must take deliberate action to ensure every Sun Devil has access to in-person and virtual communities where they are happy, healthy and safe.
The first step, for anyone looking to take action to dismantle a culture of violence, is to learn. Thank you for your commitment to creating a community of care here at ASU by learning how you can take action to prevent violence and support people in and outside of our Sun Devil family. Here are some places where you can start:
A better understanding of sexual violence is integral to taking action to dismantle a “culture of violence.” The first step is awareness and understanding, so we can begin to take mindful actions to address and prevent violence in both in-person and virtual environments.
First and foremost, we can respond with support for all victims and survivors. To learn how to support someone who is concerned that they may have experienced sexual or relationship violence, visit Providing Support.
We all have a role to play in preventing sexual and relationship violence. ASU Sun Devils strive to serve as role models for others in their community by challenging behaviors that contribute to a “culture of violence” in both in-person and virtual environments. This webpage reviews only some of the actions everyone can take. Do you have an idea to add to this list or a suggestion for improvement? The Sexual and Relationship Violence Program would like to hear from you! Please email comments, ideas and feedback to email@example.com.
We can all work together to create a safer space in which all Sun Devils thrive.
