The PAUSE approach can help you gain awareness on how your biases might lead to treating others unfairly and how you can find options for new decisions.
The University of Central Arkansas drew on the SPLC guide to compile a short list of questions and responses that can help you respond to everyday bigotry that you might experience with your family or at work.
Speak Up Guide: Responding to Everyday Bigotry
The Southern Poverty Law Center gathered hundreds of stories of everyday bigotry from people across the United States. They told their stories through e-mail, personal interviews and at roundtable discussions in four cities. People spoke about encounters in stores and restaurants, on streets and in schools. No matter the location or relationship, the stories echo each other.
What is a Bias Incident?
A “bias incident” is defined as an act – either verbal, written, physical, or psychological that threatens or harms a person or group on the basis of actual or perceived race, religion, color, sex, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, or expression, national origin, ancestry, disability, marital status, civil union status, domestic partnership status, atypical heredity or cellular blood trait, military service or veteran status. Cultivating trust requires accountability.
How do I report a bias incident?
In the Rutgers–New Brunswick, Rutgers–Camden, and Rutgers–Newark Chancellor-led units bias reporting is centralized through the Dean of Students office. For the Rutgers Biomedical Health Sciences Chancellor-led unit bias reporting is done through the individual schools, please visit their websites for more details.
