Men join the fight to stop rape on college campuses

Last semester Breakthrough and IU MARS (Men Against Rape and Sexual Abuse) joined forces to support and drive culture change at Indiana University. IU MARS was founded specifically to work with men who are part of the Greek system and has had more than 200 members since its founding. Members plan and hold campus-wide events to raise awareness of the issue of sexual assault, but also meet regularly throughout the semester to have deeper conversations about what factors — such as gender norms, alcohol, pressure to have sex, and more —play a cultural role at IU. Al Jazeera America has highlighted IU Mars in a video story shared below. Stay tuned for an exciting new campaign that will unfurl soon…
