Bystander Intervention & Community Care During COVID-19

Abuse and violence thrive in isolation and silence. Women, trans, and non-binary people are particularly vulnerable to abuse during social distancing and quarantine. The home is not a safe place for everyone. As feminists it is important that we embrace an ethic of care that cuts through the isolation and fosters social solidarity even if we must maintain physical distance. We also must grant compassion and permission to those who need to break the rules of social distancing in order to seek safety.

In this zine you will find some suggestions on how we can work together in our communities, families, and friend groups to break the silence on gender based violence. This is not an exhaustive list encompassing every possible method of bystander intervention. It is also important to recognize that not all of these suggestions will work in every scenario. We do hope that this will spur discussion about gender based violence, as well as creative and collective action.
