Campus greeks to lead date rape prevention effort

Students from Sacramento State sororities and fraternities along with the Queer Straight Alliance will visit local bars and distribute coasters with messages about the dangers of date rape drugs. The event will start with a kick-off rally for Take Back the Night from 6-7 p.m. on April 4 in the Redwood Room at Sacramento State. Following the rally, the students will go out to the bars to distribute the coasters starting at 7 p.m.

The coasters carry the message "Watch your drink-Watch your friends" and contain information about drugs that can be slipped into drinks, such as liquid ecstasy, GHB, and Rohypnol. The coasters also explain how to get help if drugged or assaulted.

The students will distribute the coasters at several local bars, including Faces, Monkey Bar, Fanny Ann's Saloon, Trino's Lounge, Sam & Cin's 7440 Club, Players Sports Pub & Grill, and The Glass Turtle.

The coasters are part of an education campaign developed between Sacramento State, the Crime Victims Bureau, and the Sexual Assault and Domestic Violence Center. The 6,000 coasters available for distribution were funded by the Jesse Snow Memorial Fund, in honor of a Sacramento State student who was killed in a drunk driving accident in 2001.

For more information about the event prior to April 4, contact Heskin at the Women's Resource Center at (916) 278-7388. Additional media assistance is available by contacting the University's Public Affairs office at (916) 278-6156.
