LA CROSSE, Wis. – The national all-male sexual assault peer education group One in Four will present “How to Help a Sexual Assault Survivor: What Men Can Do” at Viterbo University Wednesday, April 11.

The group is named One in Four because statistically one in four college women have survived rape or attempted rape since their 14th birthday. The group, which features four graduates of William and Mary, focuses on treating men as potential helpers, not potential rapists. This program teaches men how they can make a difference by helping women recover from sexual assault.

“We are very excited to bring the One in Four Tour to campus during sexual assault awareness month,” said Erica McIntee, president of Viterbo’s chapter of Students Against Sexual Assault. “Education is a huge key to preventing sexual assault.”

One in Four travels across the United States in a large RV to get its message across. The presenters, all men themselves, don’t blame men for being the problem, but instead seek to make men part of the solution.

Presentations will be held at 8:30–9:45 a.m., 10–11:15 a.m., and 1–2:15 p.m. in Brophy Nursing Center room 211 and at 7 p.m. in Reinhart Center 127. There will be a special presentation for men only from 3–4:15 p.m. in Brophy Center 211.

The event is free and open to the public, and area college and high school students are encouraged to attend. Audiences can enter a drawing for prizes, which include a one-gigabyte MP3 player. One in Four’s appearance at Viterbo is sponsored by Students Against Sexual Assault, the Viterbo Student Activities Board, the Viterbo Women’s Studies program, Grizzly’s, Pizza Doctors, and Festival Foods.
