About the presenter:

Angela Rose is an expert on sexual assault prevention and survivor empowerment. She started community organizing for policy change at the age of 17 after she was abducted from a shopping mall and sexually assaulted by a repeat sex offender who was on parole for murder. Since that life changing moment, she has traveled extensively educating students, professionals, and military audiences on sexual assault prevention, survivor support, and legislative policy. She authored the book Hope, Healing and Happiness: Going Inward to Transform Your Life to help other survivors overcome adversity.

In 2002, Angela founded the non-profit organization, Promoting Awareness | Victim Empowerment (PAVE), to formalize her passion and gain support on education and action surrounding the issues of sexual violence. Today PAVE has over 50 chapters and affiliates, convened the first National Campus Sexual Assault Summit held at Georgetown Law that broadcasted live to over 300 colleges, and was invited to contribute to the White House Task Force on Protecting Students from Sexual Assualt.
