As a result of a White House task force created to spread sexual assault awareness and prevention, the nationwide movement “It’s On Us” was created. The University of South Florida St. Petersburg’s student government began participating in the It’s On Us initiative in 2014 and this month held a documentary screening, discussions, resource fairs and pledge taking.

If you or someone you know has experienced some form of abuse, there are several options on campus available to help.

The Wellness Center has several resources available to victims of assault including a Victim’s Advocacy Center with services available 24/7 and a phone line at (727)-873-4422. They also provide different forms of consultation and many more services.

Campus police are available to report a crime or situation of distress at (727)-873-4444.
