Don’t Be That Guy
Sex without consent is sexual assault, also known as, rape.
Battered Women’s Support Services has partnered with Vancouver Police Department, Bar Watch, WAVAW and BC Women's Hospital and Health Centre in an initiative that urges men to own their role to end rape.
Don’t Be That Guy - a behavioural marketing campaign sends the message that sex without consent is sexual assault. We are sending a visual message to men between the ages of 18 – 25, graphically demonstrating their role in ending alcohol facilitated sexual assaults.

The Violence Stops Here
The Violence Stops Here is taking the anti violence message into the 21st century by using social media, online initiatives, training workshops and cultural events to urge men to own their role in ending violence against women (VAW) while raising funds and volunteer commitment to see the end of violence against women.
Our goal is to raise $2 million for Battered Women’s Support Services (BWSS) www.bwss.org to support their intervention work across British Columbia and their prevention work across Canada and Internationally.
