UW student fighting to improve sexual assault prevention on campuses

Tuesday, July 11, 2017

Thanks to the efforts of a Waterloo student, sexual assault intervention training could soon become mandatory for bar and restaurant employees.

Sarah Wiley, a fourth year psychology student at University of Waterloo, spent the last year lobbying at Queen’s Park for more sexual violence education and prevention initiatives geared to university students.

This spring, Wiley’s advocacy work paid off when NDP MPP Peggy Sattler introduced private member’s Bill 147, Safe Night Out Act, which had its first reading June 1.
