It’s On Us

-In 2014, a White House task force called for a measure to spread the awareness and prevention of assault. As a result of that objective, a nationwide movement titled “It’s On Us” was created, and has since worked with over 500 college campus to foster education and preventative solutions of assault (Itsonus.org).

-In 2016, during the month of October, the 45th term of Student Government began its first year of participation in the It’s On Us initiative. SG held events such as a documentary screening, discussions, resource fairs, as well as pledge taking

-Taking the pledge to end assault is one of the most important components of It’s On Us, and has been done nearly 300,000 times from people around the country.

-Updates will be released closer to “It’s On Us” week with specific details of all the events that are being planned, but this is a crucial week of awareness, and we hope you visit the official It’s On Us Website to learn more
