From major headlines to new efforts by America’s even smallest employers, the #MeToo movement has breathed new life into sexual assault awareness – including a big effort spearheaded by Grambling State Students and staff.

“It is important for GSU to join in the Sexual Assault Awareness Month Movement to bring awareness and dialogue of the importance of respect in relationships and consent,” said Beverly Crawford, Beverly W. Crawford, Title IX Coordinator/EEO Officer for GSU. “It is also important for the GSU community to embrace survivors who courageously use their voice to speak the truth.”

This month Grambling State students and community members will band together to grow sexual assault awareness on campus through four big events:
