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?
