"It's on US," Orange County's Sexual Assault Prevention Campaign
Orange County is proud to be the first county in the United States to join the White House's 2014 It's On Us campaign, designed to raise awareness about sexual assault. It's On Us is a cultural movement aimed at fundamentally shifting the way we think and talk about sexual assault, especially on college campuses. It is a rallying cry, inviting everyone to step up and realize that the solution begins with us. The campaign seeks to reframe the conversation surrounding sexual assault in a way that empowers, educates, and engages everyone to do something, big or small, to prevent it. For more information visit the It's On US website.
