HELP CARRY THE WEIGHT    #carrythatweight 

On Monday, April 13, Carry That Weight is calling on students to join together once again and demand that college administrators take REAL action to end gender-based violence and rape culture at our schools.

Without concrete policy changes at the campus level, our campuses will continue to be unsafe. Survivors will not have access to critical resources and perpetrators will not be held responsible for committing violence. This is why we are calling on campuses to demand better policies to prevent and respond to gender-based violence. Schools across the country are joining and in organizing to push for important policy changes--will you be a part of the movement?

National Child Abuse Prevention Month is a time to acknowledge the importance of families and communities working together to prevent child abuse and neglect, and to promote the social and emotional well-being of children and families. During the month of April and throughout the year, communities are encouraged to share child abuse and neglect prevention awareness strategies and activities and promote prevention across the country. In recognition of the 40th anniversary of the Child Abuse Prevention and Treatment Act, we have designed a historical timeline of significant moments in child abuse prevention in the United States
