Purpose: This project will address gaps in knowledge and understanding of the criminal justice system by creating a bystander intervention curriculum specific to Nova Scotia. The comprehensive curriculum will include the creation of a series of online informational videos on justice processes to inform survivors, teachers and other professionals who interact with victims. The project aims to counter the normalisation of sexual violence, which negatively impacts victims' likelihood of reporting and accessing supports. The bystander intervention program will be piloted in at least four communities, including First Nations and African Nova Scotian communities. Lessons learned will be shared with police, crown prosecutors and victims' services workers through presentations in a number of Nova Scotia communities.
