Tell the White House how to end sexual assault on campuses
Those of college age are four times more likely to become victims of sexual violence than any other group. The White House has appointed a task force to address this problem, and RAINN will soon be presenting proposals to its members. I write to request your help and ideas.
What's the best way to stop serial rapists on campuses? (Nationally-recognized expert Dr. David Lisak has estimated that three percent of college men are responsible for more than 90% of college rapes.)
How can we get colleges to stop treating rape as an internal matter and start treating it like the violent felony it is?
How can we better educate students about the risk of sexual assault and what they can do to help keep their friends safe?
