Northwestern Athletics has filmed its own video in support of the It's On Us campaign, which is designed to create a cultural shift in the way college campuses think about, talk about and act around sexual assault.


Eleven Northwestern student-athletes from a cross-section of the Wildcats' 19 varsity programs came together to film the video, which is inspired by the initial video released by the White House at the launch of the campaign.


The It's On Us campaign partners with colleges across the country to fundamentally shift the perception of sexual assault, while inspiring everyone to take accountability in prevention efforts. The campaign encourages individuals to become a part of the solution by taking a pledge to commit to keeping men and women safe. Managed by a Washington, D.C., non-profit organization called the Center for American Progress, the campaign is supported by President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden.
