About Us

After assessing the campus culture and the need for a large-scope, violence prevention initiative Bears that CARE: Take Action (BTC) was created in January 2012 and launched to the UC Berkeley community in the Fall of that same year.  BTC is an active bystander initiative whose objective is to create a community of care, where community members are able to recognize and intervene by using creative tools (CARE MODEL) to de-escalate a situation that could be potentially harmful. 
We encourage you to Take Action and be the change in your community by attending an Awareness Presentation
