The Advocates’ Teen Interns, the ETCs, in collaboration with The Community Library, are screening the film “Roll Red Roll” via The Community Library’s Livestream. The film tells the story of a sexual assault that took place in 2012 in Steubenville, Ohio, where three football players raped a young high school student. This documentary explores culture change within the community and exposes the denial, peer pressure, Steubenville football culture, and social media influence that play key parts in the tragedy. By focusing on the reality of rape culture, the film aims to reduce the stigma surrounding it.
Females ages 16-19 are four times more likely than the general population to be victims of rape, attempted rape, or sexual assault. This April, for Sexual Assault Awareness Month, The Advocates hope to empower, educate, and better our communities understanding of consent, sexual assault, and rape culture. Join and watch this impactful exposé about a topic that impacts all of us. Watching this film will bring us one step closer to create a culture of consent that supports survivors of sexual assault and keeps perpetrators accountable.
