Encouraging and Supportive Signs Needed for Survivors of Sexual Assault

Posted on 4/23/2020 1:53:15 PM

You can show your support for survivors of sexual assault by creating an encouraging sign during Sexual Assault Awareness Month.

The Haven Project is asking everyone—students, faculty, staff, and administrators—to stand up and show how IUP supports survivors of sexual assault with the What Would You Tell a Survivor signs. We encourage you to invite others to participate in this project as well. The deadline to submit your photo is Monday, April 27.

  • You can visit the Haven Project website on the main page and scroll to the bottom right above the news posts. You will see a flyer and the template of the sign that we are asking everyone to fill out for this project. 
  • You can also download the sign template from this post as well.

What to Do

  1. Print out the sign

  2. Write your encouraging/supportive message to a survivor (no names of survivors, please)

  3. Take a picture holding the sign (or just of the sign, it is up to you)

  4. Email the picture to haven-project@iup.edu

  5. Check the Haven Project’s website after April 27 to view the video of IUP supporting survivors!
