RISE-NOW against sexual assault and domestic violence

RISE-NOW against sexual assault and domestic violence


Undergraduate students in my socially conscious design class Design Rebels at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, Virginia are required to create a project that reaches the community beyond the school to talk about some of the issues covered in the course. The RISE-NOW campaign is one of two projects that came from the Fall 2007 semester.

The goal of RISE-NOW is to spread awareness of resources available to survivors of sexual assault and domestic violence. The students created four posters, a website filled with local and national resources, and a brochure (several of which were attached to each poster in a small paper holder). The posters, which were hung up in local bars, restaurants, and stores as well as on campus, are available as hi-res downloadable PDFs.
