The statistics on campus sexual assault are staggering - one in five women and one in sixteen men will be sexually assaulted during his or her time on campus. It's time that we stand up and say no more to this epidemic. Change starts here.
April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month. I want you to know that LFGSM is focused on the health and safety of everyone in our community. To show our support, we are committed to the It's On Us campaign.
It's On Us is a movement reframing sexual assault and encouraging everyone to play a part in preventing it. We are asking everyone to create an environment where sexual assault is unacceptable and survivors are supported. As students, faculty, and administrators, it's on us to make that happen.
Here at LFGSM we are joining thousands of schools from around the country to become a part of the It's On Us campaign to end campus sexual assault. We have a responsibility to shift the narrative around sexual assault and create an environment that supports survivors.
We urge all of you to visit www.ItsOnUs.org to take the pledge and join the movement.
