RAINN’s new PSA says “Speak out”

9 04 2009

The Rape, Abuse and Incest National Network (RAINN) recently released a PSA in honor of Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention Month called “Speak Out” to encourage people who are affected by sexual assault to speak out:

“Speak Out” features model and singer Krishnar Lewis and his new song, “Sad Girl.”  Krishnar said:

It’s an honor to be included in this new campaign, raising awareness for sexual violence. I’ve recently had to deal with sexual violence because of a family member who was raped, and turned to me for help. The value of RAINN and the National Sexual Assault Hotlines is immeasurable in that it allows those affected by sexual violence to get help in a safe and confidential manner, 24/7.

I am a big fan of this PSA, and I encourage those of you readers who are Tufts students to attend the Sexual Violence Policy Community Forum on Thursday, April 23rd at 7 PM in the Metcalf Lounge.  This is your chance to directly give your input to the administration on how Tufts handles sexual assault ranging from the policy to prevention measures.
