ISS releases second PSA for It’s On Us campaign

By Charlotte Collins

Illinois Student Senate continues to publicize for the It’s On Us campaign in a campus and national effort to combat sexual assault.

The Greek Life PSA for the It’s On Us campaign was released Monday and was sent by email to all students affiliated with Greek life — a total of approximately 7,000 students. 

The next PSA for the It’s On Us campaign is in the works and will feature Chancellor Phyllis Wise, basketball coach John Groce and statistics professor Ellen Fireman, among other campus leaders to promote the campaign’s message of community responsibility for sexual assault.

On Wednesday, the Illinois State House passed a bill for same-day voter registration on campus for public institutions in Illinois. ISS officials had reached out to Champaign County clerk Gordy Hulten in an effort to get same day voter registration at the Illini Union earlier this year to increase turnout for students on campus, but was unable to achieve it. The bill will be voted on by the state’s Senate next.
