Are you looking to bring anti-sexual violence work to your campus or community? Are you looking for innovative ways to coordinate your local work with other efforts on the national level? Are you looking to make a lasting, positive impact on your campus for current and future students?  

Well, you’ve come to the right place. At End Rape on Campus (EROC), we envision a world in which all individuals have educational experiences free from violence, and until then, that all survivors are believed, trusted, and supported. To achieve this, we work to end campus sexual violence through three pillars: direct support for survivors and their communities; prevention through education; and policy reform at the campus, state, and federal levels.

We decided to start a Regional Rapid Response program for students, like you, who want to bring anti-sexual violence work to their campuses or in their communities and provide the resources, tools, and best practices to students, survivors and their loved ones more accessible; helping survivors understand their rights under applicable civil rights law, and assisting them in holding their campuses accountable when student rights are violated; serving as a watchdog for Title IX violations; running national campaigns and help students replicate said campaigns at the local and campus levels in areas of rapid response, policy advocacy and educational efforts; doing speaking engagements and workshops on campuses around the country; and advocating for survivor-centric policy reform at the local and national levels.

 

REGIONAL RAPID RESPONSE TEAM MEMBER (10 MEMBERS FOR EACH REGION)

Join our inaugural team of the Regional Rapid Response Program, and combine forces with a group of diverse and talented young people across the nation. EROC’s Regional Rapid Response Program recognizes that we are in a critical moment, where the leadership of the movement to end the crisis of campus sexual assault and coverup on campuses continues to grow older and more removed from campus spaces. We are using this critical moment to formalize our grassroots work and build a national network of responsive and highly competent youth activists who are ready to galvanize their communities for change.

Members of the Regional Rapid Response Team will be part of a one-year cohort and student activist opportunity aimed at empowering team members people with the skills that they need to successfully organize in their community. Rapid Regional Response cohort members will receive support from the EROC team in the development and execution of their own organizing skills and advocacy efforts, as well as professional development and field-specific opportunities.

Regional Teams are a support network where student organizers can connect with like-minded students across the country. The 10 students in each region will develop deep relationships and provide one another with thought partnership and support for their local and campus events. Regional teams will also work together to execute regional participation in EROC’s greater national work. In the past, local participation in national work has included hosting sister events with an event we’re hosting in DC, helping EROC inform federal policymakers by hosting town halls, or students coming together from across a region to support a piece of state legislation one team member is working on.

Fueled by this thought partnership and EROC’s resources and mentorship, Regional Rapid Response members will be leaders on the issue of campus sexual violence in their community, and will be responsible for planning, preparing, and executing various events and actions in their respective campus, city, or state.  This network will convene at least once a year at our Regional Annual Conference. Students are NOT responsible for directly organizing the annual conference, but will work directly with EROC’s program coordinator (the Regional Rapid Response Manager) to achieve a successful event. As a member of the Rapid Regional Response team, the cost of accommodations, travel, and participation in the annual regional conference, as well as any currently unplanned regional or national gatherings that may come up as a result of rapid response work, will be covered by End Rape on Campus. 

AS A TEAM MEMBER YOU WILL:

  • Develop deep organizing and work relationships with your fellow team members, and provide strategic and emotional partnership and support to one another
  • Develop, implement, and host successful events, produce effective outreach, and increase/develop a presence on your respective college/university campus or local community.
