20:1 Bystander Intervention Program

The 20:1 Bystander Intervention Program for Students is a sister program to the original 20:1 Sexual Assault Prevention Program and derives from the Third Tier: The Bystander Program. 20:1 acknowledges the wide range of areas of interpersonal violence that is prevalent on college campuses, and as a result, this program expands beyond sexual assault prevention, offering education on a variety of topics around interpersonal violence prevention.

Gaby Cuautle

Hello! My name is Gabriela Q. Cuautle and I am currently a senior at Binghamton University. I am the first in my family to attend college and currently in the process of attaining a double degree in Political Science and History. I am a proud Mexican-American that was born and raised in Brooklyn, NY. I am also currently an active member of Phi Alpha Delta Pre-Law Fraternity Chapter at Binghamton University. I aspire a career in law and hopes to one day become a corporate lawyer. I have had the honor to be a past member of the 20:1 Sexual Assault Prevention program and it has truly been one of the most empowering experiences I have encountered. Therefore being one of the reasons for joining the sister program also know as 20:1 Bystander Intervention program. I hope to not only increase my knowledge on the subject but to continue to educate as many people as possible.

Juliana Girard

Hi Everyone! My name is Juliana and I am a senior here at Binghamton and am from Rochester, New York.I am currently pursuing my undergraduate degree in Sociology as well as an adjunct in Business Management. After graduation I plan on going to graduate school to earn a degree in social work and become a therapist. The Bystander Intervention Group was something that I wanted to get involved in for many reasons; the biggest being that I want people to know they have the power to make a difference in someone's life, and through the work we do, we give individuals the tools they need to do just that.

Senior Advisor for Binghamtons Association for Mixed Students (BAMS), Student Ambassador for Binghamton University and Peer Advisor for College for Community and Public Affairs. My future goal in life is to work in the human resources department in the United Nations. 20:1 Program has taught me many things so with the knowledge I acquire I want t educate not only the Binghamton University but everyone about the dangers of their behaviors which may not be known to them. I look forward to meeting you all!

Laura Dowling

Hey! My name is Laura Dowling, from Rockland County, NY. I am a senior studying psychology. Last year I interned with 20:1 and I loved the experience and learned so much, so I had to continue working with it's brand new sister program, The Bystander Intervention program. When I am not interning, I also volunteer at the Broome County Department of Social Services. I am also an undergraduate research assistant in the Levis Lab on campus. I am looking forward to this year with the Bystander Intervention Program because I think everyone has been in a situation where they didn't know if they should make themselves involved or how to do so safely. I hope this program can become as successful as 20:1 and I'm excited to be a part of it's starting year.

Marley Gonzalez

Hi my name is Marley Gonzalez. I am a senior theatre major, a sister of Phi Sigma Sigma sorority, and a PR assistant for the Vice President of Multicultural Affairs. I worked as an internfor 20:1 last year, and wanted to do it again because I really believe in the cause. I think we do make a difference, and I think people do really listen to what we have to say. I like when we hear that thoughts have changed after a presentation and I hope we make the same impact this year!

Matthew Wiener

My name is Matthew Wiener, I am from Long Island, I am currently a junior History major at Binghamton University and I plan to graduate in 2015. I am a brother of the Tau Alpha Upsilon Fraternity and have frequently served on the fraternity's executive board. In addition, I often represent my fraternity at Binghamton's Interfraternity Council Meetings. After my undergraduate studies, I plan on attending law school. I decided to join the 20:1 program because I think it's a good idea to look back on my own past bystander situations, apply the knowledge I have from this program and spread it to my peers as these situations are particularly relevant to the college lifestyle.
