It’s On Us

its on us

It’s On Us is a National Campaign started by President Obama and Vice President Biden in 2014. The campaign seeks to engage college students and all members of campus communities in preventing sexual assault in the first place.

“It’s On Us” aims to fundamentally shift the way we think about sexual assault, by inspiring everyone to see it as their responsibility to do something, big or small, to prevent it.

The campaign reflects the belief that sexual assault isn’t just an issue involving a crime committed by a perpetrator against a victim, but one in which the rest of us also have a role to play. We are committed to creating an environment – be it a dorm room, a party, a bar or club, or the greater college campus – where sexual assault is unacceptable and survivors are supported. This effort will support student-led efforts already underway across the country, and will focus particularly on motivating college men to get involved.

They have numerous PSA’s and celebrity endorsements, tips to be part of the solution, ideas for spreading the word on campus, and a pledge you can take to show your support.

More information can be found through the It’s On Us website or The White House website.
