Each year, an executive board is elected to oversee the day-to-day tasks, as well as the long-term goals of Sexual Assault Peer Advocates. This is a group of advocates who have distinguished themselves in their service, passion, and commitment to the Emory community and its survivors. Each one strives to create a survivor-friendly campus, educate the community in order to prevent sexual assault, and promote a healthy environment for survivors; they work on a daily basis to achieve these goals. Not only are they empowered advocates and student leaders, they’re a close group of friends who care deeply about one another and making a positive, lasting impression on the Emory community.
