Reduce the likelihood that the crimes of rape or sexual assault will occur within your organization. In addition to being criminal offenses, rape and sexual assault can bring sanctions from the university as well as national governing bodies, and can ruin the reputations of your members, the organization, the team, or the university.
-Good Public Relations
When a rape or sexual assault occurs (or is even rumored to have occurred) within an organization, word quickly spreads to beware of that group. Taking an active part in sexual assault prevention allows the rest of the MSU community see your organization in a positive light. Depending on your level of involvement, your group can be listed on the MSR website as a supporter so that others can see that your organization is committed to preventing sexual violence.
-Protect and Educate Your Members
A large number of men who committed rape or sexual assault didn’t know they had committed a crime, even though their actions clearly met legal criteria for these offenses. An MSR presentation will teach your members what the laws are and how to look out for yourself and your friends.
-Help Protect Females
We all have females who are close to us: friends, girlfriends, sisters, and mothers. Department of Justice statistics show that 1 in 4 women will be a victim of rape. Learning about sexual assault, rape, and what you can do to prevent it helps educate others and works towards keeping women safe.
