V-DAY, Vagina Monologues & SAFER, Students Active for Ending Rape team up!


We've been telling everyone that SAFER winning IdeaBlob would bring us all closer to ending rape on college campuses. Here's why:

18 to 24 year olds are the most coveted demographic for advertisers and interest groups alike, and SAFER's biggest challenge in the last few years has been cutting through the noise to reach the students who want to make change on their campus.

Now, we finally have the answer! SAFER is thrilled to announce that we will be partnering with V-Day this year to get every college group that performs the Vagina Monologues on campus to also analyze their school's sexual assault policy.

The women who perform the Vagina Monologues are already campus leaders when it comes to sexual assault awareness, but many of them don't know that they could be making change at their very own school. Partnering with V-Day, we will reach more than 700 groups, at least 21,000 students, and this project will create the first ever nation-wide network of students working together to change sexual assault policies and programs.

V-Day has very generously contributed seed money to the project, but we need another $20,000 to get it off the ground.

That's why your IdeaBlob vote,
