College students gathered at Emory University last weekend for RespectCon, a conference that centers on student conversations and the ways they help sexual assault victims find justice.


Venkayla Haynes, a Spelman College student, was keynote speaker at the conference. Haynes is a regional advisor to It's On Us, an Obama administration initiative to end sexual assault. The campaign has continued with the support of the Biden Foundation.

We spoke with Haynes about her commitment to ending sexual violence, the future of It's On Us and the #MeToo movement.
