To empower students and survivors to combat sexual violence on college campuses through grassroots organizing and advocacy.
Who We Are
We are students, young alumni, allies, and survivors of sexual violence. We are tired of seeing statistics come to life in the stories of those we love. The status quo of sexual violence is not acceptable to us. Now, we are calling on our peers, our administrators, and our elected representatives to be impatient for change and join us in demanding justice now.
What We Do
Sexual assault is a complex issue, and there is no one solution, but there are proven measures we can implement now: Provide evidence-based training on prevention and response. Grant survivors free access to medical care and counseling. Require fair and transparent investigations of all claims of sexual misconduct. Collect and publicly release data on sexual violence to increase transparency, measure progress, and find solutions.
Our campaign started in Massachusetts, and for the last 4 years, we have organized an all-volunteer movement to change how things are done in our state. Hundreds of students from more than 20 campuses across Massachusetts have gotten involved. Student-written legislation addressing sexual violence has passed the House and the Senate. More than 100,000 supporters have signed on in support of our bills.
Today, as states across the country look to take action against campus sexual violence, the Every Voice bills have become a national model. Now, we are working with students across the country to fight for justice for all survivors, regardless of where they happen to go to school.
