This national public awareness and education campaign was launched by the White House Task Force to Protect Students from Sexual Assault on September 19th to engage and educate all members of campus communities about what they can do to help prevent sexual violence and support survivors. From November 19th - 21stIt’s On Us is holding a national week of action to mobilize campus communities. The campaign's emphasis is on educational efforts geared toward the primary prevention of sexual violence and outreach efforts to support survivors. Overall, these efforts seek to effect social change in how our community responds to sexual violence. Conversations about the primary prevention of sexual violence and supporting survivors are an important move away from attitudes and practices that blame and shame victims.

The UPUA Sexual Violence Awareness and Prevention Roundtable is holding a tabling event for the It’s On Us national week of action. They will be in the HUB from Tuesday the 18th to Thursday the 20th.
