Ally Intervention can be direct or indirect. If you feel unsafe intervening directly, call the police.
Direct Intervention tactics:
State your objections. Take a firm stand. (“She said ‘No.'”)
Drive an intoxicated person home.
Interrupt or create a distraction. (Knock on the door until someone answers.)
Talk to the person directly. Speak the truth calmly. (“I’m worried because this behavior is harming you.”)
Indirect Intervention Tactics:
Involve a professional.
It is important to know your limitations as an Ally. You never need to intervene directly in a violent situation; call 911 instead.
