Did you know?
1 in 5 college women will be sexually assaulted or raped while they are in college. This is unacceptable. The Pact5 movement is a grassroots campaign by students and faculty to create awareness of this problem through short documentaries. Student filmmakers from 5 Universities: CalState Northridge, Western State Colorado, Northern Illinois, Framingham State (MA), and Rowan (NJ) made 10 documentaries in 2013. They are diverse and creative. It is time for the world to hear this message: the way to end sexual assaults is to educate males and females on why it happens so it won't happen ever again. Enjoy the docs, hear the message, spread the word. Make the Pact pact5.org
