NotAlone.Gov: Making sexual assault resources readily accessible to students and schools.
We need to provide survivors with more support and we need to bring perpetrators to more justice and we need colleges and universities to step up.
- Vice President Joe Biden
CHALLENGE: Improve the transparency and information-sharing of sexual assault prevention and enforcement data for students and schools.
SOLUTION: In less than 30 days, a team of Presidential Innovation Fellows and 18F staff built NotAlone.gov, a website containing typically disparate and often difficult-to-find information for students, schools, and anyone interested in finding resources on how to prevent and respond to sexual assault on college campuses and in schools.

500,000+ page views in first 6 months.
"On the website, students can learn about their rights, search enforcement data, and read about how to file a complaint. The website will also help schools and advocates: it will make available federal guidance on legal obligations, best available evidence and research, and relevant legislation."
