Report It Rally

Join Us in Making History!
Tuesday, April 29, 12:00 - 2:00pm
UW Campus on the HUB lawn
Over 80% of sexual assaults go unreported.  Survivors across the country are often re-victimized in the criminal justice system.  It's time to take a stand!  Join thousands of people across the country in an unprecedented show of unity for all victims.  
The Report IT Campaign is a nationwide state-to-state rally to Report sexual violence and abuse on the same day! It was created to raise awareness on the vast under-reporting of sexual assault including rape, incest, and abuse.
Ø     Together we will break the silence of sexual violence!
Ø     Together we will speak in one voice for all victims.
Ø     Together we will call for an end to the injustices.
Ø     Together we will all Report IT on April 29, 2008 - Angela Shelton Day.

This campaign gives you more than one path to REPORT IT.  You can report it anonymously on-line here  http://www.reportitnow.org/reportabuse.html  and it is NOT reporting it to the police, BUT it does give you the opportunity to stand up and be counted.  We need a mass movement and real numbers to shake the legal system into paying attention to this very serious crime.
