Welcome to the 'It's On Us' week of action

In September, we announced a partnership with the It's On Us campaign, an initiative aimed at fundamentally shifting the way we all think about sexual assault, with a focus on college campuses. The campaign revolves around the belief that sexual assault isn't just an issue involving a perpetrator and a victim, but one in which the rest of us also bear responsibility. We are committed to creating an environment - both in the physical world and on our site - where sexual assault is unacceptable and victims are supported.

It's also important to note that this isn't just a women's issue. One in 16 men are sexually assaulted in college in the United States. This is a very real problem.

Today begins the campaign's official week of action. SB Nation will be offering original features throughout the week, starting with the PSA below. You'll also notice that we have changed the logos on every single one of the blogs in our network in support of the campaign. We take this issue seriously, and are proud to be a part of the effort to find a solution.

There are many things you can do to support the movement, the first of which is to take the pledge, a simple commitment to help keep men and women safe from sexual assault. Stay tuned to this space during the week for more ways get involved.
