V-DAY and SAFER--Winter Break Challenge

Calling all students and recent grads! Students Active for Ending Rape (SAFER) and V-Day, a global activist movement to end violence against women and girls, have kicked off their second annual Winter Break Challenge (WBC), and they’re asking for your help.

The challenge urges students across the country to submit their campus' sexual-violence policy to the Campus Accountability Project’s database, in an effort to analyze the current strategies and reform them. By taking time out of your winter break to register at www.safecampus.org, and submit your school’s protocol, you’re helping to stop violence on campuses across the country. SAFER will implement a series of training videos, which will deliver an overview of the sexual-assault policies submitted, and ultimately suggest improvements that will strengthen prevention efforts and aid survivors.

Right now, 233 policies are online, but each additional one helps. SAFER and V-Day aim to collect 300 in an effort to have more colleges and universities correctly identify the good, weed out the bad, and stop the ugly.

Check out the "Why Policy" video below and get involved!
