Our Voice is the University of Oklahoma's active bystander intervention campaign. The mission of the Our Voice campaign is to educate the campus community on the realities of gender-based violence and how to intervene when they encounter problematic behavior or instances of sexual harassment, sexual assault, dating violence, or stalking. The Our Voice campaign is a collaboration between the Gender + Equality Center and the Institutional Equity Office.
