One Wave is Tulane's bystander intervention initiative that aims to equip our community with the knowledge, skills, and confidence to intervene in situations that involve, or have the potential to involve sexual assault. One Wave empowers each Tulanian to proactively and outwardly support norms and actions that protect from violence.
Traditionally, a bystander is anyone who is aware of violence present in our community and/or witnesses a moment of harm without action. One Wave empowers bystanders to take action. A One Wave Bystander is someone who actively does something to create an environment of greater safety. One act, one bystander can make a difference.
One Wave workshops are 1-hour peer-led conversations that provide foundational knowledge and skills on how each of us can help keep our peers and communities safe from sexual violence. After this training you will be able to recognize potential moments of harm, acknowledge barriers that stop us from acting, and identify realistic ways to intervene.
