WEST POINT, N.Y. (dec. 04, 2015) - The U.S. Military Academy at West Point Corps of Cadets continued its commitment to the "It's On Us" campaign at Michie Stadium Nov. 21 by joining together in the effort to prevent sexual assault by showing off "It's On Us" T-shirts in a show of solidarity.
After President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden initiated the campaign on Sept. 19, 2014, and asked for men and women across America to make a personal commitment to step off the sidelines and be part of the solution to campus sexual assault--that's just what the cadets at West Point did.
The creation of a designated leader position with the responsibility to take on this challenge was established.
USMA's Cadets Against Sexual Harassment and Assault Committee is made up of 43 cadets. CASH/A is a grassroots program, now in existence for two years, that encourages cadets and all members of campus communities to prevent sexual assault by seeing it as their responsibility to do something to prevent it.
