It’s on US

It’s on each of us to stop sexual violence.


It’s On Us at UC Riverside to stop sexual violence. At UCR, we recognize the various identities and intersectional experiences of our students, staff and faculty. Now more than ever, it’s on us to:

  • Support survivors and vulnerable communities
  • Bring awareness to sexual violence and injustice
  • Cultivate solidarity through healing, activism and education
  • Stand together

Sexual Violence is engaging in sexual behavior without the consent of the other person, or when the other person is unable to consent. It includes sexual assault, sexual battery, intimate partner violence, and stalking. It affects all communities regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation, and ability.

Do Something to Stop Sexual Violence.

You may find yourself in a situation where you can help prevent sexual violence. Even if you don’t know the person involved, you can still help.
Just remember these three options:

  • Be direct (ask if they need help)
  • Distract (Get creative! Diffuse the situation)
  • Delegate (get help from someone else)

Get Help. Give Help. Share Survivor Resources and Reporting Options.

You are not alone. Learn about survivor resources, rights, and confidential spaces.
