V-Day Applauds Senators Gillibrand and McCaskill For New Effort Fighting Sexual Assaults On College Campuses
"Our 'Making the Grade' report - released jointly by SAFER and V-Day in October - highlighted the lack of accessibility, oversight and enforcement of existing college sexual assault policies," SAFER (Students Active For Ending Rape) and V-Day, the global activist movement to end violence against women and girls. "College student activists reported on their schools existing policies as well as a need to address the existing culture of rape.
V-Day is pleased that Senators Gillibrand and McCaskill utilized the report as a tool for advancing legislation on this critical issue. We applaud Senators Gillibrand and McCaskill for their attention, for advancing the important work led by student survivors and advocate groups, and for their commitment to creating violence-free campuses nationwide."
