Ending rape on campus: Activism takes several forms By Emanuella Grinberg, CNN

This link is about campus rape. It is a widespread problem. My hope is that Universities start addressing the issue. It is time to explore solutions for the problem. It is time to stop blaming the victim and stop sweeping it under the rug. Rape and sexual assault does exist on college campuses. Lets work on a solution and get the problem solved.

Athletes and Rape Prevention

Have you ever wondered what would happen if student athletes became part of rape prevention and education on college campuses?

I as an athlete have pondered that question. I believe, athletes properly trained and encouraged to support and help the campus communities can make a powerful difference. Football players would enforce and monitor there own team on campus while helping the whole campus with Rape education and prevention. They would be honored for there contribution to campus safety.

Why stop there? Why not involve all student athletics in the cause. They could take a pledge to do no harm and help battle campus rape. The more people helping cure the problem and working on education and prevention the better.

A campus with ZERO rape or sexual assault is a safe campus. Each dorm floor would have educated student athletes training non-athletes on how to stay safe, how to report, how to help and where to get help.

It is better for athletes to part of the solution on campus instead of part of the problem. Its time to protect the mothers, sisters, girlfriends and friends form that evil four letter word RAPE. It is time to step up and be a leader on campus and prevent and educate the campus community on RAPE.
