The Ontario government released a powerful new PSA to help reduce sexual assault. Unlike other initiatives, this brief video isn't aimed at the perpetrator, though, but rather the bystanders.

Sexual assault can happen anywhere and often happens in public places. This PSA makes all of us responsible for sexual assault by pointing out the fact that doing nothing is just as big of a problem. It might be uncomfortable or even cause conflict, but we all have a responsibility. A simple intervening action could make a bigger impact than you realize. Who will you help?
