Awareness Days

Start by Believing: Every Response Matters

When sexual assault victims turn to us, we know that every response matters. The responses of friends and family members matter. The responses of police officers, nurses, and advocates matter. Simply put, every response to a sexual assault victim matters, because it can have a powerful impact on their healing process and pursuit of justice. Take the pledge today to start by believing.

What is The Red Zone?

The “red zone” is shorthand for the first six weeks at the beginning of the school year when a disproportionate number of campus sexual assaults take place. The Department of Justice has identified the period between students’ arrival on campus in late August and Thanksgiving break as the stretch of time when a student is more likely to be assaulted than at any other point in their college career.

Why is it called the Red Zone? 

Because it is believed that there are more sexual assaults on U.S. college campuses during this time than any other time during the school year.

*This does NOT mean that sexual assaults do not happen at other times of the year*
