Mustangs for a Safer Campus
We know that violence prevention happens within communities - those powerful bonds and social structures can make for incredibly impactful culture-change campus-wide.
Mustangs for a Safer Campus is a collaborative of passionate students with two main branches:
As athletes, we are very familiar with hierarchies of power and are susceptible to the exploitation of those power differentials (coaches, administrators, team captains, other student-athletes, managers, and even non-athlete students belong to athletic systems of power).
The goal of Athletes for a Safer Campus is to create a dialogue and learning space for Cal Poly student-athletes to foster healthy relationships and change the culture that surrounds gender- and power-based violence in sports. If you are interested in being a leader and an ally for your team, Athletes for a Safer Campus is the place for you to cultivate those skills.
Runners are often discouraged from running alone at night; so every year, ASC hosts the Annual Night Relay - an event that reclaims the night as an act of resistance.
