Not Alone

Click on image for larger view of report cover page

President Obama proclaimed in January, 2014 "we need to keep saying to anyone out there who has ever been assaulted: 
you are not alone. We have your back."
On April 29th the White House Task Force to Protect Students from Sexual Assault released its first report, "Not Alone." 
Not Alone is built upon the national conversation the Task Force initiated with those committed to 
ending sexual assault. 

In "Not Alone," the Task Force offers their first set of action steps and recommendations.

You can access the "Not Alone" report (20 pages of MUST READ information, recommendations & links for those who care about creating and maintaining safe campuses) at this link: 
In addition, the U.S. Department of Education Office for Civil Rights (OCR) released "Questions and Answers on Title IX and Sexual Violence". These questions and answers clarify the legal requirements and guidance articulated in the Dear Colleague Letter (DCL) that was issued by the DOE Office of Civil Rights on April 4, 2011.

You can access the Questions and Answers document here:

This Not Alone website provides resources, tools and connections to help all of us turn the tide on sexual assault and violence.
