SAFER empowers student movements to combat sexual violence on college campuses. We generate knowledge that equips student activists with the evidence and resources they need to combat campus sexual assault. We envision a world where survivors receive support, schools are held accountable, and students hold the power to effect change.
SAFER was started by Columbia University students in 2000 after a successful sexual assault policy reform campaign. After getting requests from around the country to advise on other policy reform campaigns, SAFER’s original student leaders incorporated into a 501(c)(3). Since that time, SAFER has run as a volunteer collective. SAFER is the organization it is because of the generations of student activists who have served on the Board; yet SAFER is bigger than any one activist.
