Dear your friend's name here,
I wanted to let you know about the Campus Accountability Project, a national project sponsored by Students Active for Ending Rape (SAFER) and V-Day. They're encouraging student activists from around the country to take a hard look at their school’s sexual assault policy and take action if they don’t like what they find. SAFER has a comprehensive list of what makes a better sexual assault policy that you can check out here, so you know what to look for if you decide to look up your own.
For more on why this is so important, check out this article and some basic facts about the prevalence of sexual violence in college communities. (You will have to register to view those articles, but it's completely free). SAFER also wants to find examples of what schools are doing WELL, so if you really like what your school is doing, add it to the database so that other student activists can pull from good examples. If you feel like your school is doing something worth highlighting, you should e-mail SAFER at email@example.com
Get started reviewing your school’s policy by clicking here. You can save your work and return to it if you need to. You can also use the database to find out what schools like yours are doing to create and maintain a campus free from sexual violence. You can also check out SAFER's other resources, like their online library of organizing materials, the Activist Resource Center and their in-person trainings.
If you run into issues or questions while filling out your submission to the Campus Accountability Project, you can e-mail them at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Let me know if you decide to take action!
