What to do when someone is harassed?

- Use AID app. Contact the team members of AID app or click on emergency button for immediate response.

This helps the person a lot because the team has fast response quality and they’ll be with you until the declaration of justice.
- Have a look on what’s happening. Look at the harasser, make eye contact, or move closer to the person being harassed. Make sure that the situation is safe enough, If so then place yourself in between the harasser and their target.
- Have a conversation with victim. Sit or stand next to them, speak to them and let them feel safe with you. Let them know you’re there to help. Try to ignore the harasser.
- Warn them directly. If you feel safe, directly confront the harasser. Warn them such as “This isn’t cool and it leads to serious consequences,” or, “Leave them alone.” This can help sometimes, but this doesn’t solve every time. Sometimes it increases the risk.
- Give advices, suggestions, not demands. Allow the person being harassed to remain in control of the situation. Comfort them talking like “Its not your fault” or “You didn’t do anything to deserve this” and don’t tell them what to do or don’t judge them.
- Search for safety. Search for someone you can really help you in such emergency situations. Or try using AID app irrespective of your location. There is safety in numbers.
- Have a record about the situation. Take photos or videos with your phone. Ask the person being harassed if it’s OK to film the incident. This can help later to show the proofs, if the incident become legal. Or just turn on the emergency button in AID app, which records your surroundings and saves in your phone as well as with the team.
- Report the incident. After everything is over, it may be helpful to report what happened to local organizations related to harassment in general, or to targeted advocacy groups. For example, if someone was getting harassed for being transgender, you could report what happened to a local LGBT organization that keeps track of this type of data.
- Check on the victim. Either after or being the incident, check on the person who is being harassed whether they are OK or not.
