Recognize violence and stop it.
If you need help, keep asking until you get the help you need.
Let's recognize and support other people who are taking a stand to help others.
Stay alert and tuned into your surroundings.
Take ownership for our action and inaction.
Get someone home safely if he or she needs it.
Stand up to those who tell us it is not our business.
