Can you think of a better medium to convey important violence prevention messages than stick figures?
I created some violence prevention bulletin board material for our residence halls and needed something visual. We have the MAC social media campaign posters, but I needed a way to create different scenarios showing people challenging inappropriate language, attitudes and behaviors. I really enjoy the look of the MAC posters, but they only cover three vague situations.
Hopefully, this will be a way to get people to stop and read the material. I’ve created scenarios addressing the usage of the words fag, whore and rape; how to support a survivor; challenging victim blaming, violent words for sex, and how to respond to an unfunny or offensive joke. If you have any ideas for scenarios or feedback, leave a comment below!
