For those Tufts students who read this blog, we strongly encourage you to attend the SAFER Teach-In at Tufts this Saturday March 28th from 2 – 4 PM.
Ashley, a trainer from SAFER: Students Active for Ending Rape will be coming to Tufts on Saturday to help students who are interested in improving Tufts’ sexual assault policy. She will walk participants through Tufts’ existing sexual assault policy and response programs, from student orientation programs (like In the SACK) to crisis response services.
Participants examine the ways that different communities both on- and off-campus are affected by the policy. They will:
– Learn how to sift through the convoluted “technical language” of their policy to find the real human impact behind dense, legalistic terminology.
– Bring together the perspectives of members of different campus groups to discuss the many ways various campus communities are affected by the policy.
– Strategize winnable changes to the policy that would make real improvements in the lives of students.
– Develop concrete next steps toward winning a better policy.
This is a great way to educate yourself and prepare for the upcoming Sexual Assault Round Table Discussion that will occur towards the end of April. More to come on that later…stay tuned!
