The spotlight on campus sexual assault will continue to shine when the documentary, The Hunting Ground, airs on CNN this Sunday, November 22 at 8 p.m. EST. The film highlights the stories of survivors of campus sexual assault and the responses they received from their institutions.
One of the pieces that I appreciate most about The Hunting Ground is how it highlights the leadership of student activists demanding to have their stories heard and in turn creating change across the country. One of those activists, Kamilah Willingham, whose experience at Harvard Law School was featured in the film, gave a powerful keynote at the 2015 National Sexual Assault Conference. Her message inspired me and I think it will inspire you too. You can check out her keynote below.
As the conversation around sexual violence on campus grows, I’m looking forward to CALCASA’s national project, PreventConnect, to launch a new campus program, PreventConnect Campus. Check back soon for updates.
