Here's a sample message to send to your friends:

Tell college and university presidents: Stop protecting rapists on campus


At Yale University and a disturbing number of colleges and universities across the country, they don't even call it "rape." Rape is officially referred to as "nonconsensual sex" and campus perpetrators of sexual assault often face written reprimand rather than expulsion or more severe penalties, if any action is taken at all.

What's worse, many of these schools also pressure rape survivors not to report the actions to local police or pursue criminal charges. Instead, they handle the matters quietly and often without penalties, in what often amounts to an official policy of covering up rape and shaming the victims.

I just signed a petition telling college and university presidents to stop protecting rapists on campus. I think you should too. Read more and sign the petition here: http://act.credoaction.com/sign/rape_on_campus/?referring_akid=a121040705.3291973.9UKN5N&source=conf_email
