No Zebras, No Excuses Addressing Sexual Aggression and Bystander Intervention

In Fall 2018, 338 individuals at Jackson College attended No Zebras, No Excuses and began the year with positive conversation about everyone’s role in shaping a culture that works to prevent sexual assault and support survivors of this heinous crime.

The No Zebras program uses real world situations presented in short video vignettes. The vignettes give examples of sexual assault, stalking, partner violence and harassment in real life environments based upon actual situations. Between each vignette peer educators speak with the audience; addressing behaviors, reinforcing laws, and policies, while discussing the actions that could be used to intercede.

The highly acclaimed No Zebras, No Excuses has been tested, researched and continually improved since it was first introduced to all new students at Central Michigan University in 1999. Since that time, countless university audiences around the United States have seen this program. Additionally, No Zebras has been the focus of trainings to military personnel throughout the world.

Each educator has several hundred hours of sexual aggression education and advocacy training/experience. This one of a kind program gets results without alienating the audience.
