One of my workshops I do at colleges is a program called Empowerment Through Verse. It centers around sexual assault, gender violence, and empowerment.
It wasn’t in researching for the program, but in researching whom to contact to try to get this program out there, where I stumbled upon this excellent resource for students … and anyone, really … to stay safe.
So with due credit to Wagner College for posting this on their site, I’m just going to put this right here…. (please visit the page!) Wagner College’s Tips for Preventing Sexual Assault
A note: We should NEVER victim-blame. Just because there are ways to be more safe, doesn’t mean it’s ever, in any case or in any measure, the victim’s fault, even when safety precautions aren’t utilized.
