THE KABB MODEL

Respect My Red utilizes the KABB model.

We build awareness on four sturdy table legs: knowledge, attitude, behavior, and bystander intervention. We think everyone should know definitions and laws. We think everyone should have an attitude to promote respect for self and others. We think everyone should behave in a way to demonstrate respect. We think everyone has the ability to be a proactive bystander in their community.
