  • Public Resource for Disaster-Related Tools and Data: The heavy snow, high winds, and coastal flooding caused on the East Coast this week by Winter Storm Juno have created the need for disaster response and recovery efforts. Disasters.data.gov, recently launched by the White House Administration in response to Hurricane Sandy, is a portal that provides information needed in the wake of a disaster.
  • The Campus Men's Action Network (CMAN): We are all aware of the importance of the issue of sexual assault on campuses. Recent research shows that bystander intervention, particularly on the part of men, can help decrease sexual violence on college campuses. However, one of the challenges has been to engage men.
