Stand Up to Stop Harassment Now!

Stand Up to Stop Harassment Now! is a call to action for employees, Veterans, and visitors to take a stance against harassment and to making a personal commitment to treat others with respect and dignity. If you witness inappropriate behavior report it to the VA Police. Join us in promoting a #HarassmentFreeVA.

Stand Up to Stop Harassment Now! is a public declaration and national campaign to take a stance against harassment. Leaders, employees, and Veterans across the country signed public declarations committing to promoting and maintaining a work environment and health care system free from harassment. Everyone can play a role in ending harassment. If you witness harassment, stop it by saying something or reporting it right away to a facility leader, the VA Police, or the Patient Advocate. Everyone should feel safe and deserves to be treated with respect and dignity.
