2016 Sexual Assault Awareness Month

April 5, 2016


About the Day of Action:

The WV Intercollegiate Council Against Sexual Violence has organized a statewide campus-based day-of-action. We ask that you join us in commemorating Sexual Assault Awareness Month on April 5, 2016 by organizing a pledge event with your campus community.


  • Our message: We will use the It’s On Us campaign, from the White House Task Force to Protect Students from Sexual Assault.
  • Our goals: Raise awareness by creating a day-long event to demonstrate our solidarity and commitment to prevent sexual violence on college campuses, and encourage the campus community to intervene in situations that could lead to sexual assault.
  • Day of Action: Utilize social media to create interest, ‘host’ the event, and conduct follow-up discussions with resources.


    • Reach as many people on campus – have them complete the It’s On Us…to Stop Sexual Assault pledge at www.itsonus.org, take a photo and upload it to social media. (See the timeline of events below.)
    • I pledge:
      • To RECOGNIZE that non-consensual sex is sexual assault.
      • To IDENTIFY situations in which sexual assault may occur.
      • To INTERVENE in situations where consent has not or cannot be given.
      • To CREATE an environment in which sexual assault is unacceptable and survivors are supported.
