Great New Prevention Program - One Student

Here is a great new student prevention education program:


ONE STUDENT DAY. BE THE ONE

One Student (
www.onestudent.org) has established today January 11th (1/11/11) as a global opportunity to encourage both action and dialogue to promote the One Student philosophy that every one of us can play a role in reducing and preventing sexual assault.


Today, please join thousands of students who are taking action to reduce sexual violence and encourage healthy relationships because one sexual assault is too many and one student can make a difference.


HOW YOU CAN BE THE ONE 


Update your facebook status to: "I can be the one. Will you be the one? Visit OneStudent.org"


Visit the community wall at www.OneStudent.org and share how you have or will take action this year to reduce and/or prevent sexual violence.


Contribute to the Weekly Word Up on the community wall and ask your friends to do the same.


Sign the One Student Pledge. Ask five friends to put their name with yours.


Visit the Learn section of the web site and share the knowledge you acquire.


Post the One Student video on your facebook wall. Even better, email it to your address book and ask them to comment on its impact.


Text to all the numbers in your phone: "It's One Student Day! Have you visited www.onestudentorg?"


Follow @OneStudentOrg on Twitter.


Tweet out any of the One Student pages by clicking the share button in the lower right hand corner. 

Introduce a campus administrator, faculty member or staff member to www.onestudent.org. Ask them to share the site with their networks.


Share your One Student moment. 


Join the One Student facebook fan page to keep up on opportunities for social change, stories of people being "the one" and lots of news you can use! 


Talk to your partner(s) about ways you can show one another respect. 


Speak up if you hear someone using language that is sexist, homophobic, racist or hateful in anyway. Hate speak directly contributes to a culture that accepts sexual violence. 


Send us a picture of you or a group of people holding up the number one or with a one drawn on their hands and we will post to share with the One Student community. 


Download or grab a copy of a book that encourages healthy relationships. Send the titles of your faves our way so we can share with the One Student community. 


Introduce your parents, partner(s), spiritual leaders, brothers, sisters...anyone whose opinion you value to the mission and values of One Student. 


Share this list with your friends, family and colleagues. 


Thank you for taking part in One Student Day and encouraging others to Be the One!
