Student Campus Chapters

What are SVPA Chapters?

There are chapters of the SVPA on campuses across the US. SVPA Chapters are student groups that are founded and run by student survivors. They prevent sexual violence on their campus through events, student organizing, administration accountability, and advocating for legislation.

What We Do

Student Organizing & Community Mobilizing
Student organizing and mobilizing on campus is essential to build coalitions and foster collective action. By uniting student voices and advocating for change, SVPA Chapters pressure campus administration to improve practices, policies, and resources for preventing sexual violence.
Prevention Trainings & Resources
SVPA Chapters host prevention trainings and provide resources for students on campus. The trainings and resources include topics such as bystander intervention, counteracting rape culture, and addressing the red zone. Resources include guides for supporting survivors and materials for prevention campaigns.
Speakout Events, Activites & Social Media
SVPA Chapters host speak outs on social media and in person. Speak outs empower survivors to share their stories of experiencing sexual violence on campus. Amplifying survivors’ stories breaks the silence, increases awareness, and fosters a collective effort to address and prevent this issue.
Legislative Advocacy & Coalition Building
Student survivors deserve to be at the forefront of the movement to prevent sexual violence. SVPA Chapters advocate for legislation through student organizing and building coalition in their community. Harnessing collective power is crucial for advocating for legislation at the city, state, and national levels.
