This past Sunday, four seniors at the University of Michigan unveiled their plans for a campaign against sexual assault on campus called “I Will.” With this campaign, they hope to:
[E]ducate and empower the community to stop what is characterized as a “silent epidemic” across college campuses…[by] launching a series of public service announcements at campus events and on the campaign’s website.
The group aims to change how students discuss sexual assault. They want to challenge conventional wisdom that teaches women and men not to get sexually assaulted and steer the conversation toward teaching people not to sexually assault others.
If we’ve learned anything from the recent campaign in Edmonton, Alberta Canada, it actually works to just tell dudes to stop raping. Hopefully every school takes up such a campaign.
