It's Abuse Campaign

iMix 110 - The "It's Abuse" Campaign from WOSU O-H-I-O on Vimeo.

A program developed by the Columbus Coalition Against Family Violence is mobilizing college students at campuses around the country. Ohio State's chapter has used a variety of outreach events to bring this topic to the forefront of student's consciousness. By teaming with InterACT, a socially conscious theatre group, they were able to engage faculty and students in an entirely new way.
