Dear Friends,

Last December the University of Montana at Missoula was ranked as the “safest” university in Montana in terms of low rates of forcible rape and other violent crimes (1). But five months later the U.S. Dept. of Justice and Dept. of Education claimed the U. of Montana’s failure to adequately address an alleged rash of sexual assaults was “very disturbing.”

In March, quarterback Jordan Johnson was charged with rape, which former prosecutor Kirsten Pabst said was done just “to send a message.” (2) And just this week, it was revealed that the U. of Montana has implemented mandatory training for students that talk about “rape-prone culture” and label false allegations of rape a “myth.”(3)

Has the U. of Montana suddenly become a hotbed of sexual assault, or is the college simply terrifying everyone because of the DED’s April 2011 sexual assault directive?

Next week, SAVE will be launching a month-long campaign designed to expose the ideological agenda behind the Dept. of Education’s Sexual Assault Directive. The campaign will consist of op-ed columns, social media, a lobbying event in DC, and radio interviews (with Sherry Warner, mother of Caleb Warner, who was terminated by the University of North Dakota, even though the local police issued a warrant against his false rape accuser for perjury!)

We’d also like to place some Facebook ads. Last June we spent $2,000, which resulted in an incredible 4 million FB impressions. Hoping to reach the same number of people this time, we’re asking for your help to raise $2,000 in one week.

Can you help us stop false allegations on college campuses?

You can contribute by PayPal: http://www.saveservices.org/contribute. Or send a check payable to:

Thank you!
