New organization for combatting rape on campus

Faculty Against Rape is a new organization with the following mission:

The mission of Faculty Against Rape (FAR) is to get more faculty involved in sexual assault issues on campus, and to protect faculty members who experience retaliation for doing so. Our name is a nod to the Feminist Alliance Against Rape (FAAR), the first national anti-rape organization established in 1974. To fulfill our mission, we provide

resources for faculty to best support survivors inside and outside the classroom
tools, guidance, and support for faculty who want to get more involved in reform efforts on their campus
tools, guidance, and support for faculty who are facing retaliation for fighting sexual violence on their campus.
