V-Day and SAFER Launch Campus Accountability Project

V-Day and Students Active for Ending Rape (SAFER) are proud to announce the launch of our joint "Campus Accountability Project: A Demand for Sexual Assault Policy Reform." For the past ten years, both V-Day and SAFER have been helping college and university students organize to fight sexual violence and challenge rape culture on their campuses. By combining forces on the multi-phase Campus Accountability Project (CAP), both organizations hope to empower more students to take an active role in changing the ways in which their campuses prevent and respond to sexual assault, and spark a nationwide dialogue on what schools should be doing to properly educate and protect their students.
