Let us support survivors and raise awareness in April!

Prevalence on College Campuses
Did you know that women ages 18-24 are at an elevated risk of sexual violence (RAINN, 2019)

It is estimated that 1 in 6 college-aged female survivors of sexual violence received assistance from a victim services agency (RAINN, 2019). Sexual violence is more prevalent at college, compared to other crimes (RAINN, 2019). Around 21% of the TGQN (transgender, genderqueer, nonconforming) college students have been sexually assaulted compared to 18% of non-TGQN females and 4% of non-TGQN males (RAINN, 2019).

Bystanders Matter!

Nearly one out of three situations involving sexual violence occur in the presence of bystanders (Planty, 2002). Montgomery College offers Bringing in the Bystander training (BITB) that teaches bystanders how to safely intervene before, during, and after an incident of sexual violence, domestic violence, and stalking. BITB trainers at Montgomery College are Montgomery College faculty and staff members who are certified to deliver a 90-minute BITB session to students. This is one of the comprehensive measures the College takes to keep students safe. The BITB curriculum:

Be empowered. Be part of the solution. You are the difference.

Contact Angela Dawson, VAWA Coordinator to schedule a BITB training for your students or to become a certified BITB trainer at MC.
