Professors Organize to Support survivors, Faculty Against Rape (FAR)


I have a new piece up at the Huffington Post today about the launch of Faculty Against Rape (FAR), a new national organization. 

FAR’s three main goals include developing resources for faculty to better serve survivors, helping faculty who want to be part of the anti-rape movement organize on campus, and providing strategy and legal resources for faculty who are retaliated against by administrations.

Beyond how-to guides for filing Title IX and Clery Act complaints, the site also includes classroom resources such as articles about professor experiences with students who disclose sexual assaults, and a sexual violence response guide. An anti-sexual misconduct toolkit contains links to activities for supporting classroom discussions about assault, tips on presenting sexual violence issues to students, background information, statistics, and more.
