Support for Rape Prevention Awareness

In honor of Sexual Assault Awareness Month, support raising rape prevention awareness among the male Greek community here in Boulder County by signing the petition below.
This petition is going around for much needed support in the fight to require annual fraternity involvement in rape prevention awareness seminars in Boulder County.
The CU Athletics Department and Sororities agree on the importance of these seminars and participate annually and/semi-annually.
Marc Stine, the head of the Interfraternity Council, has declined speaking to us about their lack of involvement in such programs.
More details are attached to the petition. Please, if you have a moment, sign and pass it along to others.
Thank you for your time.
