It’s On Us ~ SUNY SA Pledge Drive to Combat Sexual Assault and Violence

According to the most recent UB police report, there were twenty incidents of reported sexual and dating violence on our campus last year.

It’s On Us: The Student Assembly has partnered with It’s On Us, an organization which works to combat sexual assault and violence. Please go to ASAP and click “take the pledge.” We want all of our SGA Presidents signed on to the pledge and need your help to do it. Once you’ve signed on, get your entire leadership team (including Senators and Executive Board Members) signed on as well. We set a goal of 10,000 signatures!
