BANTS – Bantams Negating Traditional Stereotypes – is a workshop series that WGRAC has been overseeing for the past two years. Students learn and practice how to be active rather than passive bystanders, with the goal of increasing the awareness and skills of participants to be able to identify and interrupt behaviors that contribute to a community where violence and injustice exists. This change in behavior has been shown to prevent acts of bias, hate, and violence - sexual violence, in particular. WGRAC has trained Coaches, Area Coordinators, and other administrators to present the workshops. These trainers have presented the workshop to most student leaders, Ferris teams, and Greek pledges. We would like to engage as many student groups as possible to help create a campus where students intervene before serious incidents or crimes occur. The workshops are about an hour and fifteen minutes, and we will work with the student group to accommodate their schedules as much as possible. If you group is interested inr eceiving this trianing please contact Laura.Lockwood@trincoll.edu or Lauren.Donais@trincoll.edu today! This workshop series is made possible through a generous donation from the Lufkin Family Foundation and the Peter J. Sharp foundation.
