End Rape on Campus (EROC) is a survivor advocacy organization dedicated to ending sexual violence through survivor support, public education, and policy and legislative reform.

We provide free, direct assistance to all survivors of gender-based and sexual violence on campus interested in filing federal complaints, organizing for change, or drawing public attention to hold their schools accountable.

We have assisted hundreds of students at dozens of schools file Title IXClery Act, and other civil rights complaints to seek justice and reform.

Regional Rapid Response

What is the regional rapid response program?

EROC’s Regional Rapid Response (RRR) program will shape the movement to end sexual violence in schools. This program brings students together nationwide who bring the knowledge, passion, and vigor critical to powering this movement and centers identities and communities that the survivor advocacy movement has historically erased in favor of dominant culture. 

We recognize that EROC’s work has, at times, fallen in line with the broader survivor advocacy movement and silenced communities facing systemic barriers. Silencing and suppressing these communities has resulted in an understandable fear of engagement from the folks who are essential to the movement. The RRR program embodies a renewed commitment to dismantling oppressive structures and taking the lead from students and their communities. EROC will provide mentorship, leadership development, and community as this generation of leaders create the change. This is a movement founded by student survivors for student survivors, and the RRR program ensures that this next generation of activists is resisting sustainably. 

This program serves as an avenue for EROC to empower students living at the most complicated intersections. This program is a way for us to provide students who have historically come up against gatekeeping with the resources that a national nonprofit can offer. We recognize that the student leaders themselves need to guide our decision-making. The RRR program is founded on a collaborative approach to this work.

This program helps participants feel comfortable in actively and directly doing the work, including relationship building with a wider audience of organizations and campaigns. Again, intending to reinforce that relationship building is essential in earning that trust and stability with institutions and people who otherwise never had a reason to feel comfortable in the survivor advocacy movement.

Students in the RRR program will organize covering intersectional concepts of support, healing, and awareness that are less common within the movement, including striving to discuss meaningful policy reform that understands the realities that policy making has historically privileged some populations over others.
