Join It's On Us and United Brody Black Caucus in watching The Hunting Ground, a documentary about the issue of sexual assault on college campuses across the U.S., and the failure of school administrations to listen to survivors and respond to the epidemic adequately. Although Michigan State is not mentioned specifically in the documentary, recent events like the Larry Nassar scandal and the allegation of rape by members of the MSU basketball team prove that sexual assault most certainly occurs on our campus, and has been a problem for many years.
