We hope everyone is getting through Hurricane Sandy alright! The office here in Portland, ME saw some wind and some rain, but thankfully not much more. If you’re in an affected area, we hope you’re safe, dry, and with power!
There have been many many recent dialogues about sexual assault on college campuses, coming from on-campus groups to major newssources to politicians (including VP Joe Biden ). We have been having that same dialogue with students, administrators, alumni, parents and friends, trying to get our message into as many schools as possible. We recently got an awesome shout-out from In the ‘Cac in a post about sexual assault prevention on college campuses. They’ve been chronicling the conversation across NESCAC schools and mentioned us as an available resource. We’ve been calling and emailing administrators and deans. We’ve been talking to current and former students. And we need your help.
If you’re a college student and you want to help bring Speak About It to your campus, help us make phone calls and send emails. Call your deans, send emails, go into their offices. If you’re an alumnus, call your favorite professor, call your campus Women’s Resource Center, email your former adviser. Email your coach, your athletic director or a current administrator. Contact us and we’ll send you more information, including specifics about what we offer and a list of our references.
Hey, I just met you, and this is crazy. But let’s change cultures, so call your deans.
We can make all the phone calls and send all the emails we want, but it’s your campus, help us take action.
For more information from Speak About It, call us at (five seven five) 770 – 5141 or email us at SpeakAboutItOnline [at] gmail [dot] com.
*Also, we’ll tell Shana to stop with the jokes already.
