Forming Relationships based on Equity and Empowerment (FREE)

St. Philip's College is in the third year of a three-year grant to reduce sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking on campus. The grant is funded by the Office on Violence Against Women. The grant is intended to strengthen the response of institutions of higher education to the crimes of sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence and stalking on campuses and enhances collaboration among campuses, local law enforcement, and victim advocacy organizations. St. Philip's College has developed a Coordinated Community Response Team that includes the Rape Crisis Center, Bexar County Family Justice Center and the District Attorney's Office and our project focuses on By-Stander Intervention.
