Men Can Stop Rape Kicks Off New Initiative Aimed College-Aged Men

Men Can Stop Rape, a leading national organization mobilizing boys and young men to prevent violence against women and Move to End Violence Pilot Cohort Member, kicked off a new nationwide intervention movement to empower college men to speak up and prevent violence on campus today in Washington, D.C.

This new push to build safer college campuses is a direct result of many recent incidents of rape, sexual assault and dating violence that have occurred on campus. This new approaches focuses on male bystanders who witness potentially violent situations, teaching them how to step in before situations escalate into actual physical or sexual violence. The initiative includes a public awareness campaign called Where Do You Stand?

The initiative kicks off today at Georgetown University. College men from Georgetown, American University and George Washington University will join Men Can Stop Rape, American Association of University Women (AAUW), and the School and College Organization of Prevention Educators (SCOPE, www.wearescope.org) to launch this new violence intervention movement at a meeting of Men Can Stop Rape student leaders.
