In The Say Something Field Guide, a project of Safe Passages in North Hampton Massachusetts, Lynne Marie Wanamaker and colleagues acknowledge that speaking up can be awkward.

An overview in The Say Something Field Guide to help develop tools to deal with awkwardness.

  • Know that you can make a difference
  • Acknowledge the awkward
  • Know your objective
  • People are watching and might learn from you
  • Expect feelings
  • Remember: you didn't invite the icky
  • Connect with like-minded others
Here is where you can find more about the  Say Something project and a copy of the Say Something Field Guide
