It's On Us: Sexual Assault PSA
UMBC is on this to end it. What's your green dot?
It’s on us, all of us, to stop sexual assault. Learn what you can do and take the pledge to be part of the solution at http://ItsOnUs.org
Jon Hamm, Kerry Washington, Rose Byrne, Questlove and others join President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden in support of the It’s On Us campaign, imploring all of us to stand up, step in, and stop sexual assault.
UMBC's bystander intervention initiative is Green Dot and has several programs/trainings. Faculty, staff and students are welcome to join us, if you have not done so already.
More information about UMBC-based and nearby resources for sexual violence are on our Voices Against Violence website. Rina Rhynes is our VAV Coordinator and can provide support and guidance regarding campus and local resources, give her a call at 410-455-3748 if you need help.
Jackson Katz has compiled a quick list to help everyone understand why gender-based violence awareness, prevention and response is relevant, and important to the entire community.
