August Highlights: It's Back To School Season! Resources to End Sexual Assault on Campus
Dear Friends,

It's back to school season! As students flock to campus, it's also a moment to remember the 1 in 5 students who experience campus sexual assault.
Research finds that over 50% of college sexual assaults occur August-November, a time period dubbed the "Red Zone." Over these months, we will be be participating in End Rape on Campus' #ReclaimRedZones campaign to reclaim the everyday parts of life that are interrupted by sexual violence. Check out their #ReclaimRedZones Syllabus for resources and ideas through the coming weeks. We hope you will join us in showing that there is no place for sexual assault on campus.
