July 8, 2009
Sharyn Potter, associate professor of sociology, and Jane Stapleton, research instructor of women's studies and family studies, recently were featured speakers at the Campus Training & Technical Assistance Institute in Dallas hosted by the U.S. Department of Justice Office on Violence Against Women.
Stapleton discussed UNH’s recently launched Know Your Power bystander violence prevention and intervention campaign. The Know Your Power campaign is the social marketing component of the Bringing in the Bystander Project, which also includes an in-person prevention program. The campaign is funded by a grant from the CDC. Potter discussed how social marketing can be a relatively inexpensive yet effective tool to reach large audiences.
