It feels like it’s been a long time since we didn’t have some horrific story of sexual assault, rape, or harassment in the news. At the time of this writing, Brett Kavanaugh is up to four credible accusers and Bill Cosby was sentenced to three to ten years for drugging and raping dozens of women. Are you fed up yet? Do you want things to change? Your DGB for today is to check out the 11th Principle: Consent! organization. Their website is a treasure trove of information, printables, and resources to educate and support an army of people ready to eradicate Rape Culture.

It’s On Us

Your DGB for today is to check out It’s On Us and take the pledge to help end sexual assault and the rape culture that fosters it.

ItsOnUs.org is a campus-focused campaign that teaches students how to combat rape culture on college campuses and beyond. The organization tackles both individual and institutional factors that lead to rape culture. It strives to empower students to call out bad behavior, insist on consent, intervene if they see an assault in progress, and to hold their schools accountable for policies that contribute to the problem. 

We are asking you to take the pledge, but you can also donate, buy a t-shirt to wear your support, sign up for their newsletter, and even ask them to come to your local college campus. The MAGA crowd likes to make fun of the term, but the truth is that we all deserve safe spaces to live, work, and learn. Sign on to help make that happen.
