Don’t Be Silenced

 


In the 2012 presidential election, 53% of Delta students did not vote.

 

“The blunt truth is that politicians and officials are under no compulsion to pay much heed to classes and groups of citizens that do not vote.” –V.O. Key.   

To vote in Michigan you must register by Oct. 11. You can also register and sign-up for election reminders at http://delta.turbovote.org.  

 

 

 

 

 

I've-Been-ViolatedTM

Recent surveys have revealed that 85% of sexual assault victims do not report their assault promptly to appropriate authorities.  When they later do report, their credibility is often questioned.  The authorities ask “Why now? Has your story changed?”

 

The I've-Been-Violated App eliminates most of these credibility questions and allows victims the peace of mind to know that reporting to authorities is fully within their control.

Find the FREE app on the Apple App Store and BREAK the silence.
