It’s on Us to Help Prevent Sexual Assault

EA is proud to stand with the White House today in the launch of It’s On Us, a new public awareness and action campaign aimed at fundamentally shifting the way we think about sexual assault. For us at EA, we know this is an important issue with our player base so we hope you’ll take a moment to learn more about the campaign and how you can join us in being part of the solution.

Why is this so important? Here are the facts:

  • One in five women and one in 16 men are sexually assaulted while in college
  • 40% of survivors fear reprisal by their attacker
  • Only 13% of rape survivors report assault
  • 8 in 10 victims know their attacker (friend, significant other, etc.)

We’re asking all of you – our players – to join us and take the pledge at ItsOnUs.org
