President, One in Four, an all-male sexual assault peer education group
Interviewed spring 2015 by Tierney Vial and Niki Afsar, research assistants for Take Back the Archive
0:18 How has sexual assault advocacy changed during your time at UVa?
â€œThe way that people talk about sexual assault prevention now is just day and night different from the way they talked about it a year ago.â€
Before this year, â€œwe were totally shut downâ€ when asking administration for money for peer education programs. Now â€œthereâ€™s a lot more money being put into education.â€
4:03 How have responses to sexual assault changed within the UVa community?
Response covers Board of Visitors, university administration, and students.
9:43 What advice do you have for students who want to get involved in sexual assault advocacy?
â€œTake your messageâ€”take what you believe and bring it somewhere elseâ€ beyond the advocacy community.
13:59 What is a high priority area for improvement in UVaâ€™s response to sexual assault?
â€œSurvivor support.â€ â€œItâ€™s not good right now.â€ People need to know that â€œwhat youâ€™re feeling is real, and if you come forward we will support you.â€
16:39 Can you talk about student reactions to the events of the 2014-2015 school year?
Student responses to efforts of student advocacy organizations like One in Four: â€œIt was either, â€˜why arenâ€™t you burning down the fraternities,â€™ or â€˜why are you supporting the feminist agendaâ€™?â€
On media frenzy: â€œThe media sucks . . . vultures . . . except for NPR.â€
22:31 Can you talk about your interactions with students through One in Four?
Some guys you talk to â€œdonâ€™t want to hear what youâ€™re saying . . . But a lot of guys are deeply affected by this, and theyâ€™re not given a platform to feel that way.â€
â€œEverybody can be reached.â€
