1 in 5 women experience an attempted or completed rape while in college. Sexual assault is an epidemic not only in the United States, but all over the world. From sexual assault on college campuses to the commercial sexual exploitation of children (CSEC), Day One addresses the issues that are affecting RI communities and is leading the effort to provide solutions for victims and those at risk.
Now it is time for you and your college to get involved. As a community in Rhode Island, we are calling on all colleges throughout the state to come and "Freeze Sexual Assault." It is also important to like the College Student Against Sexual Assault facebook page and join the event page.
When you FREEZE, you hold a natural pose as though you were frozen in time. That pose is held for approximately seven minutes. To fully understand, watch this video. As you watch the video notice the people around react to the participants of the FREEZE. As time goes on awareness increases. When the FREEZE is going on you should not move a muscle. Both those participating in the FREEZE as well as those witnessing will be aware that something abnormal is occurring. This abnormality will cause people to look closer and read the facts on the shirts therefor spreading awareness. This goal of this event is to not only collect any donations through t-shirt sales, but to spread awareness of the problem that is sexual assault.
