More than a quarter of a million people are sexually assaulted each year in the U.S., but you have the power to help change that. Here are some things you can do to support survivors and join the fight against sexual violence:
- Share the National Sexual Assault Hotline: It’s never too late to let a friend know you care, and it’s never too late to get help. Share this resource with those in need: online.rainn.org or 800.656.HOPE.
- Get social: Connect with RAINN on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram for shareable content, including specific ways you can care for your friends. Share RAINN’s #SAAPM graphics, tweet statistics and don’t forget to include the hashtag #SAAPM.
- Talk to Congress: Ask your members of Congress to support the bipartisanCampus Accountability and Safety Act, (S. 590/H.R. 1310) a bill that reforms how colleges address sexual violence on campus. Visit the RAINN Action Center to learn more about how you can #ActWithRAINN. Read more
