Props to our allies at Domestic Abuse Intervention Services (DAIS) who are mentioned in this piece, and are dealing with an increase in service demands that no non-profit should ever have to deal with (especially not in a time of dwindling economic resources). Please consider making a donation if you are able to do so…

The Badger Herald: News: Alleged rape at Sigma Chi

The Badger Herald: News: Alleged rape at Sigma Chi.

The Sigma Chi fraternity has placed itself on a form of social probation amid a controversial investigation into at least one sexual assault that allegedly took place at its Langdon Street house last October.

Our thanks to this brave victim who has brought her experience to light, enabling her to connect with other victims and get the ball rolling on legitimate criminal investigation.

Let’s hope that Michael Dunn, executive director of the Sigma Chi International Fraternity, is earnest when he told the Herald that they are “taking the allegations very seriously and is cooperating with both UW and police.”

Let’s also hope that beyond the legal considerations, the IFC at UW will take more decisive action to increase prevention education in their frat and on the UW campus as a whole.

MSR blog – the new frontier

Greetings! If you’re looking for Men Stopping Rape, Inc., in Madison, WI you have come to the right place. After over ten years having our web site hosted with DaneNET (an organization that provides technical support to non-profit organizations), we had to go packing, as they have decided to suspend their web hosting services. We thank them for a decade-plus of solid service, and are please to have the same excellent customer service from Dreamhost. They offer rock-solid support, free hosting for non-profits (!) and reasonable rates for other hosting services for personal and business sites (like this for example :).

As we move into our new digs, there will be some growing pains; I’ve implemented WordPress to help expedite the posting process, so look for more regular, topical articles or comments to be posted here in the near future. I’ll also be migrating our former site content, so if you’re looking for information about our workshops or scheduling a visit from us, please return. Or, if you have pressing questions, contact Stephen or Joe.

Let the new adventure begin…
