RAINN will be implementing 'Get Carded Day' on Tuesday, September 23, 2003. Volunteers from RAINN member centers, campus groups, and supporters will be distributing 500,000 wallet-sized cards with information about the National Sexual Assault hotline, in addition to tips on how to reduce your risk of sexual assault and what to do if you are sexually assaulted on campuses all over the country. RAINN is trying to get various organizations and individuals on college campuses involved as well. Basically, they are asking for people to commit to distributing a certain number of cards on their campus.
