Raise the Bar

Raise the Bar(RTB) is a new program designed and implemented by the Sexual Assault Prevention and Awareness Center (SAPAC) at the University of Michigan, The University Health Service (UHS), and The Ann Arbor Community Coalition (A2C3.) The mission of Raise the Bar is to decrease the incidences of sexual and gender-based violence among University students within the Ann Arbor community. The program works with local bars to provide tailored workshops on the subject of sexual assault and bystander intervention.

Activating Our Campus: A Collective of Anti-Violence Student Activists

On April 2nd, 2016, SAPAC student volunteers organized Activating our Campus, the first conference of its kind that united student members of the anti-violence movement across the state of Michigan and built upon participants' strengths through shared knowledge. In bringing our programs and members together, we deepened the passion that draws us to, and motivates us in, our activism. With 14 colleges and universities from across the state of Michigan, this unprecedented gathering allowed us to discuss issues of sexual health, empowerment, and sexual assault awareness.

Networking, Publicity, & Activism Volunteer Program Winter 2016

The NPA's have had such a successful semester! We welcomed over 20 new volunteers to our group, and we're so lucky to have them. With so many new volunteers we were able to table many events this semester, and work towards reaching as many people on campus as possible, one of our main goals. Some of the events we table at include, but are not limited to Winterfest, the Greek Women Speak Out, Take Back the Night, and of course Week of Activism. Usually the NPAs have one large event/project winter semester, but this year we were able to have two.
