Sexual Assault Prevention Initiatives 

 Sexual assault is a pressing issue on Temple's campus and many across the nation. Students often encounter a lack of information and transparency from administrations on the issue and struggle to find supportive resources. ReimagineTU, supported by our Presidential Candidate’s experience as President of Student Activist Against Sexual Assault, is devoted to bringing awareness to on-campus resources and addressing the ongoing epidemic of sexual assault and failures to address it. Ray has been involved in the field sexual violence prevention since her 8th grade year, where she began interning on Capitol Hill for the anti-teen dating violence non-profit organization Break the Cycle. She has dedicated her life to researching and creating nuanced forms of activism and training to combat sexual violence.

Presently, the orientation module only acknowledges sexual violence in the context of drinking alcohol, implying that the only time you can be sexually assaulted in a way that Temple will recognize, is if you are intoxicated. Temple must acknowledge that there are a variety of contexts in which sexual violence may take place and consent education must be appropriately flexible to these contexts, as well as providing information regarding resources on campus. Click to learn more about ReimagineTU's plan.

SafeBar certifications promote safety at alcohol serving businesses. The certification educates managers and owners on strategies to identify harassment and other inappropriate behaviors. ReimagineTU plans to partner with WOAR and SAASA to get Pub Webb and Maxi's SafeBar certified. Click to learn more about ReimagineTU's plan.
