The mission of the S.H.O.E.S. (Sharing Her/His Own Experiences Supportively) Program is to introduce our community to personal stories of University of Idaho sexual assault survivors/victims and their families. By supportively revealing these experiences our intention is to increase awareness, create community, and build intolerance for rape supportive behaviors within our campus culture. B.E.A.R. paw prints will serve as a guide to encourage a collective journey of education and awareness toward holding student rapists accountable for their actions.
