Sexual assault education: Peer Educators for Effective Relationships (PEER) group

March 23, 2015

For the last three years, students in the Peer Educators for Effective Relationships (PEER) group at St. Norbert s College have raised awareness of sexual assault throughout the Midwest by bringing interactive performances to a variety of audiences in high schools, on college campuses, and at national conventions. Group members perform a mock trial of a case involving an accusation of date rape. Members of the audience are randomly selected to serve as the jury. After the case is heard, the jury leaves to deliberate while remaining audience members talk about their impressions of the case. The various discussions raise issues as audiences are made to think about the issues of date rape and sexual assault.
