Inflatable Ponies and Sexual Assault Awareness Month

April is Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention Month and a group of students are leading a campus wide effort to educate ourselves on the nature of consent, understand how to support victims and survivors, and highlight that the majority of sexual assaults are committed by someone known to the victim.

In order to change the culture on our campus we invite all UW students to:
  • Watch this video
  • Take the pledge to better our community
  • Visit us at RAINN Day this Friday, April 3rd from 11am-3pm in Red Square
At RAINN Day you will learn about RAINN 'EM IN. It's a human powered horse race against sexual violence where teams race on inflatable ponies and UW has a team! The official race in on May 16th and all UW students are welcome to join our team (see attached flyer)! There will be music, giveaways, races, and resources at RAINN Day tomorrow - so stop by, say hello, and bounce on an inflatable pony.
