CHECK IT Opportunities
CHECK IT is a student led project and growing movement on campus. It's about rejecting our culture's passive acceptance of harm and making it a norm to CHECK IT (intervene) if we see an absence of consent or a high-risk situation where someone may be hurt. CHECK IT is about making clear to those who commit acts of violence (specifically sexual assault, dating violence, stalking) that it is not acceptable and we are not going to put up with it in our community. CHECK IT is about strategizing as a community different ways we can take action when we see potential moments of violence or harm happening around us so that in those moments we have the tools to do something instead of nothing. CHECK IT is about creating a campus culture that's more rooted within a sense of community where we all look out for one another and have each other's backs.
