It’s On Us

I want to challenge you to take part in the national “It’s On Us” campaign.  It’s On Us is about asking for consent, it’s on us to intervene; to support survivors; to create a culture of respect.

Go to ItsOnUs.org and take the pledge.  Let your friends know you took the pledge by changing your facebook profile photo.  We’ll be sharing videos all week, both made on-campus and made by different groups off-campus.

Once you finish your finals, gather some friends, a student org, your floor, or others to make your own video.

The Sunday before Block 3 begins, you’ll need to upload your video to google drive and share it with Gwen Schimek, Dean of Students.  In the meantime, think about your It’s On Us messages.  First place group gets a meal cooked by Gwen.  Second place gets dessert or snacks cooked by Gwen.

Rules:

  • Create a video promoting the It’s On Us campaign. Research statistics, information, and other items related to sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, stalking, and sexual harassment and write a script, find some actors, and cut it all together.
  • Maximum length: 60 seconds
  • Deadline for submission: 8:00 p.m. October 30
  • Questions? Contact gschimek
