A new video, produced by University of Notre Dame students, aims to shift the way people think about sexual assault. Created similarly to a recent White House initiative, the video is part of the “It’s On Us Notre Dame” awareness campaign launched by the Gender Issues Committee within Student Government. The campaign’s goal is to empower individuals to be active participants in stopping sexual assault.
“‘It’s On Us’ is a rallying cry inviting everyone to step up and realize that the solution begins with us — everyone in the Notre Dame community,” said Kristen Loehle, a sophomore from Gainesville, Virginia, the former director of the Gender Issues Committee and coordinator of the “It’s On Us Notre Dame” campaign. “It’s a declaration that sexual assault is not only a crime committed by a perpetrator against a victim, but a societal problem in which all of us have a role to play, especially in taking steps to prevent it from occurring on our campus.”
