A Hudson Valley college launched their "It's On Us" campaign, a program that encourages campus communities to take an active stand against sexual assault.

The "It’s On Us" campaign is an initiative from the White House. Orange County became the first county in the United States to embrace the campaign. “The It’s On Us Orange County, N.Y. initiative is a giant step in changing the environment surrounding sexual assault in our communities," Orange County District Attorney David Hoovler told Hudson Valley Post.

Hudson Valley Post was at Mount Saint Mary College in Newburgh on Wednesday when the college kicked off their It's On Us campaign.
