The Backbone Zone: A new bystander intervention campaign

In July our interview with Drew Wing told you about  a new campaign from the Maine Coalition Against Sexual Assault (MECASA), in partnership with Boys to Men.  Just released, Backbone Zone! focuses on bystander intervention. From the site:

Everybody has a backbone. The Backbone Zone is a project to help students find theirs, and to give them tools to confront gender-bullying, sexual harassment, and sexist and homophobic language when they see and hear it.

Check out the campaign posters and other materials on the Backbone Zone! website.
