Our Story

It’s On Us was founded in September 2014 as an initiative of the Obama-Biden White House. The program launched following recommendations from the White House Task Force to Prevent Sexual Assault that noted the importance of calling everyone into the conversation on sexual assault prevention. Over the last six years, It’s On Us has grown into the nation’s largest nonprofit program dedicated to college sexual assault prevention and survivor support activating students on hundreds of campuses in our awareness and education programs.

It’s On Us is housed at Civic Nation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that uses organizing, engagement and public awareness to address some of our nation’s most pressing challenges.

Civic Nation works with public and private partners to inspire, educate and activate people around the issues that are important to our country.
