Last year, SAFER (Students Active for Ending Rape) asked student activists to tell them about their experiences combatting rape on campus. They received over 500 responses and have just published their findings in Moving Beyond Blue Lights and Buddy Systems: A National Study of Student Anti-Rape Activists. You can read the whole study at their website.
via SAFER Campus:
As we began our twelfth year, SAFER wanted to assess the current needs of student activists working to end sexual violence on campus and our effectiveness in meeting those needs. We are using the findings to inform our strategic planning and help us develop new resources and programs to provide support to students as they work to reform campus sexual assault policy. We also hope that by providing important information about the activities and perspectives of student activists, these findings will be useful to the broader anti-sexual violence movement.
In related news, SBAI staff will be at the Survivor to Thriver: Confronting Sexual Assault on Campus conference all of Wednesday. We hope you will join us — the conference is free and open to the public. View the schedule here.
