Students: Make April Sexual Assault 'Activism' Month With SAFER

April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month and Students Active for Ending Rape (SAFER) is replacing "awareness" with "activism." They're asking student organizers and their allies on campuses across the US to go beyond awareness, "sexual violence exists," to direct action, "I can take steps today to end sexual violence."

Join them by taking an action pledge on their campaign site today. At the end of the month SAFER will distribute a short questionnaire to pledged student activists about which action they took. For students who both take the pledge and complete the questionnaire, they will randomly select a number of raffle-prize winners. One student group will be eligible for a free SAFER training and follow-up mentoring in the Activist Mentoring Program (AMP!). Be a SAFER student activist and spread the word!
