On September 19, 2014, President Barrack Obama launches the IT’S ON US initiative to end sexual assault on college campuses across America. IT’S ON US asks that we all take personal accountability for preventing campus sexual assault by working as a team. According to www.itsonus.org , we are all encouraged to take the following pledge: “This pledge is a personal commitment to help keep women and mend safe from sexual assault. It’s a promise not to be a bystander to the problem, but to be a part of the solution.”
Take a look at some of the campuses making a commitment to the campaign and read about how your campus Coordinated Community Response team can create it’s own unique IT’S ON US campaign. Also, available on this site are tips on how we can all implement bystander interventions when in a situation where sexual assault may occur.
