WNU holds #IASK, Sexual Assault Awareness Month, May 2019

WNU honored Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM) through the #IASK campaign, a term coined by the National Sexual Violence Resource Center. As such, the club hosted numerous events including the "green means go" consent day during which green flags were placed around campus,tabling and giving out #IASK themed items (April 1) , observing a day of silence (April 2), participating in the Clothesline Project hosted by Women's Services (April 4), sponsoring a brown bag lunch on sexual violence with advocates from Women's Services (April 11), leading the Take Back the Night march and vigil (April 14), hosting "Ask a Forensic Nurse" with forensic nurse examiner Sharon DeMasion (April 19), and observing Denim Day on April 25th to close out SAAM.


Why Not Us? has four core pillars. These are as follows:


Educate the Allegheny College community members about the sexual violence and rape culture that affects all members of this community.

Engage members of the Allegheny College community through campus-wide events, discussions, and collaborative efforts. Why Not Us?  will work with Allegheny College administrators to ensure that our campus community can best support survivors of sexual violence, and work to end rape culture. 

Empower those in our community to work to end rape culture, step up when they witness instances of injustice, and to support survivors of sexual violence. 

Collaborate with other campus organizations to influence campus policy and climate with the goal of ending rape culture.
