RAINN Day is an annual day of action to raise awareness and educate students about sexual violence on college campuses. It is a grassroots program designed to empower college students to educate their peers about risk reduction and recovery resources on their campus.

When is RAINN Day?

RAINN Day is held the third Thursday of September (this year on Thursday, September 17). However, some schools extend RAINN Day events to last a week, or even a month. The best part about organizing a RAINN Day is that you can tailor your awareness activities to fit the needs of your community.

How do I sign up?

You can sign up as an individual, department, student organization or campus resource center to create an event that fits the needs of your community. RAINN Day organizers will receive the complete RAINN Day event planning and promotion guide, and by participating on social media with #RAINNday, schools will have the opportunity to be profiled by RAINN.

What does RAINN Day event look like?

As a RAINN Day organizer, you decide what kind of event best fits the needs of your school or organization. There is no one-size-fits-all event or activity. Whether screening a documentary, or hosting an awareness booth on the quad, you can and should tailor activities to fit your campus size and interest.

I'm with a high school or community group. Can I still host a RAINN Day event?

Yes! RAINN Day can be adapted for any community or organization. If you want to educate your community about campus sexual assault, you can host a RAINN Day event. Take a look at past RAINN Day Events on campuses nationwide.

When we provided students with the statistics about rapes, sexual assaults and incest, they were stunned . We know that through this event, we increased students' knowledge and awareness about rape, abuse and incest. We look forward to hosting RAINN Day in the future! Yvette Hooker, Dillard University
