The White House’s initiative to end sexual assault on campus

 

A new PSA and website released this week are part of the White House effort to end sexual violence on college campuses.

“Colleges and universities can no longer turn a blind eye or pretend rape or sexual assault does not occur on campus.”



Those words came from Vice President Biden at an event announcing findings by the White House’s Task Force to Protect Students from Sexual Assault. This first-of-its-kind task force launched in late January and is aimed at preventing and responding to incidents of sexual assault on college campuses.



The administration also released a new video, urging an end to sexual assault on college campuses. The Vice President was joined in the video by President Obama, Daniel Craig, Seth Myers, Benicio Del Toro, Steve Carrell, and Dulé Hill. Check it out below:

The task force, headed up by the Vice President and Senior Advisor to the President Valerie Jarrett, is working to provide long-term education and tools for colleges across the country to respond and prevent incidents of sexual assault. In their findings, the task force listed a series of actions that the White House can take to move that goal forward by helping colleges and universities to effectively to survivors of assault, and improving the government’s federal enforcement efforts.

  1. Thank you for continuing to feature this, it is important. There seems to be so many important stories that are not getting told. This is only one. I don’t know if you have ever heard of Project Unbreakable, but it might be another link you could add.

    Love your new background. Another important story.

    • Seems as if campus rape became important when the little caucasian girls started getting raped. Campus rape has been off the charts since I was on a college campus back in the middle 80’s, it was rampant then and is still rampant. It was not an issue until blonde haired/blue eyed girls started getting raped, now it is in the lime light.

      • Agreed, though they have always been getting raped. Believe me it has always happened, they were just told not to speak up or they would never find a ‘good’ husband and/or no one would believe them. When I was raped, many many years ago, long before I was on a college campus that is what my mother told me. It was never reported.
