Campus sexual assault is so rampant that President Obama and Vice President Joe Biden called rape and sexual assault on college campuses a “public health epidemic” in 2014 and started the “It’s On Us” campaign to change the culture and end campus sexual assault nationwide. Nearly 200 colleges and universities, the NCAA and numerous other organizations are participating.
Studies show 1 in 4 college women and 20 college men are sexually assaulted before they graduate. Women ages 18-24, who are college students, are three times more likely than women in general to experience sexual violence. (Females of the same age who are not enrolled in college are four times more likely.) Females ages 16-19 are four times more likely than the general population to be victims of rape, attempted rape, or sexual assault.
To help and empower victims to report the assaults and reduce sexual assaults on campus, we provide sexual assault and domestic violence survivors to speak at colleges, trade schools and universities across North Texas for free. We also investigate, publish news stories on our Blog and share our stories with news media to help make the changes necessary to reduce campus sexual assaults.
Thus far we’ve spoken at Richland College, Remington College/Dallas and Remington College/Ft. Worth. We’ve been invited to speak at Southern Methodist University, the University of North Texas and Texas A&M-Commerce.
We’ll soon be scheduling speaking engagements at other colleges, as well as on middle and high school campuses across the Dallas-Ft. Worth Metroplex.
Contact us to schedule a free speaker or volunteer to speak.
