It's On Us launches its third Week of Action campaign

This week, It's On Us is launching its third Week of Action on campuses across the nation. From November 8-14, thousands of students across the nation are taking a stance against sexual assault on college campuses by taking the pledge to help prevent such dangers.

Sexual assault affects men and women alike during their college experiences. In fact, one in five women are sexually assaulted during college, a number that is simply unacceptable. This is why it is crucial for people to participate in the It's On Us Week of Action to help raise awareness of sexual assault across the country. Education of these dangers is the first step in preventing such instances.

To prepare for the third Week of Action, It's On Us helped facilitate a call between Vice President Joe Biden and over 400 students to discuss the events for the coming week. David Clifford, a student at Maryville College and an It's On Us Student Advisory Committee member, introduced Vice President Biden for the conference call. Watch the video below for more details on this event.
