The “It’s On Us” campaign was launched in 2014 by the White House in an effort to prevent sexual assault on college campuses by asking students to change their own attitudes and practice bystander intervention. Bystander Intervention refers to noticing when a sexual assault is about to occur and stepping in to stop it.
