Building on the national “It’s On Us” movement launched by President Obama and Vice President Biden in 2014, “It’s On Us PA” engages education leaders as well as students, teachers, families, and communities to make a personal and public pledge to play a role in preventing and responding effectively to sexual violence. Since the launch less than a month ago, over 200 people – including representation from over 100 schools across the commonwealth – have taken the pledge and signed on to the campaign.“It is on all of us to ensure that Pennsylvania’s students receive a quality education without having to worry about the threat of sexual assault in our schools and on our college campuses,” said Dr. Levine. “Governor Wolf is committed to created schools that teach – and ensuring that those schools also provide a safe and nurturing environment for our students from kindergarten through college. Sexual assault should never be part of any student’s education experience – and I am proud to join Governor Wolf and the over 200 Pennsylvanians that have already taken the “It’s On Us PA” pledge.”Dr. Levine was joined at the event by State Senator Jay Costa, State Representative Dan Frankel, as well as representatives from the PA Department of Education, PA Commission for Women, PA Action Against Rape, Pittsburgh Council on Higher Education, Duquesne University, University of Pittsburgh, California University of PA, Indiana University of PA, Community College of Allegheny County, Carlow University, Chatham University, South Allegheny School District, Avonworth School District, Bethel Park School District, Allegheny Intermediate Unit, Woodland Hills School District, Baldwin-Whitehall School District, Northgate School District and South Fayette Township School District.“We all share in the responsibility to keep students safe and prevent sexual assaults on college campuses,” said Senator Costa. “I’m proud to be part of the “It’s On Us” campaign and see it as an opportunity to further open lines of communication and build bridges between our students and the community. While these discussions won’t be easy, they couldn’t be more important.”“I’m proud to join Physician General Levine for this important roundtable discussion in the heart of my legislative district,” said Representative Frankel. “President Obama and Governor Wolf have shown great leadership in working to combat the epidemic of campus sexual assaults and I believe the “It’s On Us PA” campaign is going to make a real difference in the lives and safety of our students across the Commonwealth.”Today’s event is an important step in a year of action, in which the Wolf Administration is working with community leaders and stakeholders from across the commonwealth to develop state-level policy recommendations to address the pressing issue of sexual assault in our schools and postsecondary institutions.# # #Like Governor Tom Wolf on Facebook: Facebook.com/GovernorWolf February 22, 2016center_img SHARE Email Facebook Twitterlast_img read more
