Create partnerships with other campus groups – other fraternities and sororities, student government, It’s On Us, women’s center, sports teams, etc.
Each group will contribute funds to buy tin buttons with the traffic light logo to distribute to students (sample vendor: http://justbuttons.org)
Create your own video, similar to the one on the homepage. Try to feature student leaders from many different groups. You can get the script here, but feel free to vary the questions if something in particular fits what’s happening on your campus. Be sure to send a link to the video to firstname.lastname@example.org so it can be added to the website.
Reserve space in a large auditorium for Let’s Get Real campus forum
Have each partnering group designate a representative for the forum. Get together to discuss/practice.
month of the event
Begin promoting the week with the video and through social media.
A couple of weeks before the event, volunteers from all the partnering groups will hand out buttons to students. By wearing the button, the student is agreeing to answer any question honestly.
We recognize that some people will use this opportunity to ask ridiculous questions. In order to direct the conversation, we suggest you hang posters around campus with sample questions.
Who thought of these questions? Actually, some of your ZBT brothers did (with a little help from some JWI interns, who are members of various sororities).
There are 15 different posters/questions that you can download and print here. But, if you’d like to have posters with different questions, just email email@example.com and we’ll create them for you.
