Roll Red Roll is a documentary film about a sexual assault in Steubenville, OH and how it imapaced the town and garnered national attention. Since its release in 2018, Roll Red Roll has led to conversations about rape culture, the role sports play in sexual violence, and how to create lasting social change. 
RALIANCE in partnership with the Roll Red Roll social impact team, Open Door Abuse Awareness Prevention, and MenChallenging has created two toolkits to help coaches, athletic administrators, guidance counselors, and sexual violence prevention advocates discuss the film with their student athletes and spark social change. The first toolkit adapts conversations, discussion questions, and selected clips in thematic sections for college athletes, while the second toolkit focuses on high school athletes."

Safety for Victims
Hosted By: Red Wing Consulting Inc.

Date: Friday, February 19, 2021

Time: 6:00am – 7:30am

Description: According to the National Domestic Violence Hotline on average a woman will leave an abusive relationship seven times before she leaves for good. This webinar will address victim safety planning and help incorporate the best safety practices within your program. We will review topics such as identifying domestic violence/sexual assault, protection orders, address confidentiality, and the power and control wheel. Safety planning is the best way to detach from physical, verbal, and emotional abuse. Through an effective safety plan with the victim it will help them feel supported in their time of leaving, helping them refrain from returning, and taking legal actions if needed. Survivors need time to get on their feet, a time and space to make decisions, explore options with privacy and respect, and be provided a sister space environment that supports survivors on their healing journey.

The Collaborative Approach to Providing Services to Campus Sexual Assault Survivors
Hosted By: International Association of Forensic Nurses

Date: Saturday, February 27, 2021

Time: 5:00am – 6:00am

Description: Often times, it is not taken into consideration how important it is to take a collaborative approach to responding to survivors of a campus sexual assault. The survivors may be provided with misinformation regarding their rights and/or the process for them as campus survivors beyond that point of contact. They may not be provided with the resources that are necessary for them to move forward with returning back to their campus life. All disciplines that provide services to these survivors should have some basic knowledge of Title IX and the role that it plays both for the survivors as well as those responding. There should be some knowledge of the various roles as well as how they interact to ensure that appropriate services are provided at the time of disclosure and throughout the survivor’s process of an administrative Title IX investigation and hearing, should they choose to initiate the process. During this webinar Chelsea Daniels from the Ohio Alliance to End Sexual Violence and Angelita Olowu of the International Association of Forensic Nurses will discuss these topics as well as cover the need for community outreach and collaboration with colleges and universities.
