Men Acting Against Rape is a student
club dedicated to education and outreach regarding the issue of sexual
assault against women. The club has received enormous support from the
campus community and we need more members to help this club as we take
an active role to stop rape. The founders of MAAR believe that this
goal of RESPECT towards all people can only be accomplished with your
help. So, check out the news or calendar pages to see when our next
meeting is, and come join us. To find out more about MAAR navigate to

MAAR is currently in development of an outreach program, that upon
completion, will take over for the UCDPD’S Campus Violence
Program, as the sole outreach program on the UC Davis Campus directed
towards male clubs and organizations regarding the issues surrounding
sexual assault towards women. If you join MAAR, not only will you help
in creating this outreach program, but you can be trained as a Peer
Educator and rewarded class units.
As a Peer Educator, you will work closely with the Campus Violence
Prevention Program as a presenter of MAAR’s peer education
This is exciting work where you will not only gain valuable work
experience, speech experience and units, but also have the chance to
truly make an impact on this campus.
Are you interested in politics? Then, MAAR offers the perfect
opportunity to put your interests for politics and the opportunity to
work in a field of tremendous impact. This person(s) will have the
opportunity to draft ASUCD legislation that will further enhance the
safety of this campus not only for women, but for the entire campus
Are you interested in journalism, public relations, or communications?
MAAR needs members interested in these areas in order to communicate
more effectively with prospective members, the campus community as a
whole, and the UC Davis Aggie Newspaper. This role, encompassed within
the Media and Outreach Committee of MAAR, will allow you the
opportunity to create advertising campaigns, develop membership
recruitment drives, and to write editorials or guest opinions to the
Aggie. This area can also encompass becoming responsible for the upkeep
and renovation for the club’s website. The possibilities for
are endless and can look excellent on a resume in any field.
MAAR has worked feverishly this year to get its name and its message
out to the UC Davis campus through the use of planned events and
discussions by guest speakers. An example of such an event would be the
display that was erected on the quad showcasing stories collected from
men on this campus regarding how sexual assault against women had
affected their lives. But, this event is just the beginning and we need
your creativity to have bigger, better events in the future. MAAR is
growing and you can be an integral part of its foundation.
JUST BE AGAINST RAPE, ACT AGAINST RAPE!
The possibilities within this club for anyone who feels this issue is
important are limitless and not restricted to the areas addressed
above. Come and make a difference on this campus by creating a safer,
more respectful environment for everyone.
