How PIA Started

Patriots In Action is a series of events that Student Government puts on during Sexual Assault Awareness Month in order to reach out to the student body the importance of this issue.

How’s it Done?

Usually PIA is held on-campus with a physical presence; however, in 2020, due to COVID-19, we had to move everything to our social media. That didn’t deter the University Life Department from creating the best Patriots in Action for the Mason Community!

How Can Student Get Involved?

Stay tuned on our website or social media to learn how you can get involved each year.

In 2020, in order to still involve students, we attempted the popular “tag challenge” that began during COVID-19 on Instagram. We created a Define Consent Challenge as well as a Denim Day Challenge! Another way we tried to get participants was through a Patriots In Action Art Gallery. We created a space for students to artistically express what Sexual Assault Awareness Month meant to them and then took the submissions and created an ‘Art Gallery’ via Link Tree.
