Your Body, Your Choice

SHARE unreservedly supports consent, choice, and bodily autonomy. If you are a person who can get pregnant and live in one of the states where abortion is now illegal, we encourage you to take steps to protect yourself, and to share information with others.

SHARE Programs & Services

Confidential Advocates provide emotional support and information for people who have experienced interpersonal violence, including sexual harassment, exploitation, or assault; relationship abuse; and stalking. They will discuss options and help survivors navigate campus and community systems. SHARE Advocates and the program director are not legally allowed to share most information they receive without written permisson of the survivor. In addition to individual meetings, SHARE's survivor peer support group provides community for survivors. Contact advocates@reed.edu for information.

Night Owls offer students support in staying safe during weekend evenings and special social events. Night Owls walk campus between 10pm and 2am on Friday and Saturday nights, offering support such as accompaniment to a residence hall, a snack or some water, and friendly conversation. They have no enforcement role, but will call community safety for support if asked, or if someone is experiencing a medical emergency. 

Sexual Health Educators provide safer sex supplies and information to students on and off campus. They host events to ensure that Reedies have access to accurate, nonjudgmental, affirming information about sex, sexuality, and relationships. 

Survivors Have Options

Survivors of interpersonal violence have the right to choose who to talk with about their experiences, and what they want to do next.

SHARE provides support for people who have experienced any kind of interpersonal violence, including sexual harassment, relationship abuse, unwanted sexual contact, sexual assault, and stalking. We also provide primary prevention education, focusing on community accountability and bystander intervention. SHARE advocates and the program director are certified confidential advocates with legal privilege, and do not report survivor information to the college.
