Students rally in support of sexual assault prevention

On Tuesday afternoon, a crowd gathered on the Centennial Mall to make a statement about the culture surrounding sexual assault. The event, titled MSU Stands: Rally for Change, served to raise awareness for the Not in Our House Campaign — a collaboration between the Voice Center, Students Against Sexual Assault, and Men Stopping Rape. The campaign aims to create “a culture of active bystanders” that can help prevent sexual violence and assist victims. After short speeches by Voice Center Campaign Coordinator Hannah Pearce and former ASMSU President Kiah Abbey, the two led a march to the Procrastinator Theater. With an audience of over 50 people, The Not in Our House Campaign unveiled their new PSA — about supporting the victims of sexual assault — produced by senior film student Andrew Preston.
