#WeBelieveYou

What is We Believe You? 

The We Believe You campaign aims to raise awareness of sexual harassment and violence and support and empower survivors.

Erica Ramos, MDXSU Vice President Business and Law, will be working to achieve a change in the culture across campus. The main objective is to make students aware of how to access the support if they experience or witness sexual harassment, whilst working behind the scenes in partnership with the university to make the reporting system more survivor focused.  

By creating an open and accepting culture at Middlesex University, we can work towards supporting survivors and making a clear message that We Believe You. 

 

How can I get involved? 

Erica will be running lots of activities throughout the year to raise awareness or provide training, which you are welcome to get involved in.
