One in five women is sexually assaulted while in college, most often, in her freshman or sophomore year. Most times, it’s by someone she knows — and also most often, she does not report what happened. And though fewer, men, too, are victimized.
We’re committed to putting an end to this violence. That’s why today, we’re launching NotAlone.gov, a website that makes resources on sexual assault prevention accessible to students and schools.
On Thursday, February 14th at 4:50 p.m. EST, President Obama will sit down with Americans from all across the country for a “Fireside Hangout” – our 21st century take on Franklin D. Roosevelt’s fireside chats. The President will join a live, completely virtual interview from nowhere other than the Roosevelt Room in the White House’s West Wing.
This online event comes just days after the State of the Union address, where the President laid out his plan to create jobs and strengthen the middle class. During the hangout, which is hosted and moderated by Google, the President will connect with people who are active online to discuss the policies and proposals in the speech.
