HOOS GOT YOUR BACK

Hoos Got Your Back is a bystander intervention awareness campaign that began in 2014 to engage the broader community in the importance of being active bystanders. The campaign is a partnership between UVA departments and local merchants to promote a community of active bystanders that believes it is everyone's responsibility to maintain a safe environment. Central components of the campaign include coordinated days in which everyone wears the Hoos Got Your Back T-shirts and training opportunities for UVA departments and local merchants.
