Partnership with Iowa State Daily, Green Dot, and Margaret Sloss Women’s Center

Every 98 seconds someone experiences assault.

During Sexual Assault Awareness Month, we will honor those impacted by power-based personal violence – sexual assault, relationship violence, and stalking (also includes forms of harassment and bullying). We will highlight stories of survivors, bystanders and allies. These stories show how we are all connected and can work together to ending violence.

Submit art, photography, writings, and video to share your connection. Iowa State Daily is looking to interview those willing to share their stories.

The Iowa State Daily and campus partners are looking for the campus community to submit work that reflects the following categories:

  • Bystander (proactive and reactive)

  • Victim/survivor of power-based personal violence (sexual assault, relationship violence, stalking, harassment)

  • Ally/Supporter

Need somewhere to get started? Below are prompts you may consider addressing:

How has power-based violence impacted you, a loved one or the community?

How are you working to prevent power-based violence, build awareness, or encourage action?

What ways are we or should we be supporting survivors of power-based violence? How have you supported a survivor?

What are the biggest areas you feel need to be addressed to prevent power-based violence?
