Alanna Volk ’22 works to end sexual violence and provide safe spaces for victims to heal

Alanna Volk ’22 is on a mission to end sexual assaults and promote healthy relationships through the power of sex education. Growing up in Oregon, she was taught a science-backed sex education and was surprised to learn that not everyone in the country benefits from the same curriculum. Since becoming the student coordinator for the BRAVe program (Bystanders Revolution Against Violence) at University of Puget Sound, Volk has created 20 seminars and spoken in front of hundreds of students in an effort to reduce the occurrence of sexual assault on campus and offer support to victims of violence.
