Federal Government Moves Quickly on Sexual Assault Prevention After Pressure

“We all have roles to play in preventing [sexual violence]. Through better education and awareness training for our young women. Through improved mentorship and socialization for our boys and young men. Through the empowerment of bystanders to recognize dangerous situations to speak up. Through improved survivor support services, and more victim-centered incident intake and justice response policies on our campuses.”

Valerie Jarrett- Chair of the White House Council on Women and Girls

“We’re going to work with colleges and universities and educational institutions of all kinds across America to help them come up with better ways to prevent and respond to sexual assault on their campuses… and then we’re going to help them put those plans into practice.”

Barack Obama- President of the United States
