O’Connor is the author of a widely-read piece on Wesleyan, “Missing the Point with Molly” http://www.phoenixhouse.org/news-and-views/our-perspectives/missing-the-point-with-molly/?utm_source=t.co&utm_medium=tweet&utm_campaign=social.

We Speak We Stand – Wesleyan’s Bystander Intervention Program
We are having our next campus-wide training November 3rd, 7:00-10:00pm in 41 Wyllys room 112.
Become an active bystander by registering for Wesleyan’s bystander intervention training! Empowered bystanders make the campus community safer by standing up and speaking out when they witness situations that could potentially harm the health and safety of others. Intervening with peers can be difficult for a number of reasons and training will provide you with the skills to move from inaction to action and intervene safely and effectively.
The training features two distinct and separate tracks: sexual violence prevention and alcohol use intervention.
