Ahead of the premiere of Investigation Discovery’s one-hour special, Sexual Assault in College: Tamron Hall Investigates on Sunday (April 30), realscreen presents an exclusive clip from the special.
According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics, an estimated one in five women will experience sexual assault during college. To explore this shocking statistic, Investigation Discovery (ID) has teamed up with Tamron Hall, esteemed journalist and host of the network’s Deadline: Crime, to explore this dark underbelly of college life.
In the one-hour special Sexual Assault in College: Tamron Hall Investigates, Hall sits down with two sexual assault survivors from the University of Minnesota and the University of Maryland to hear their stories of survival, the pained aftermath of their attacks, and the inspiring steps they’re taking to reduce the number of sexual assaults between college students. The special also features interviews with key activists and experts on the topic.
“Sexual assault is a truly pervasive issue sweeping colleges, nationwide – one that we cannot ignore or simply turn a blind eye to,” said Henry S. Schleiff, group president of Investigation Discovery, American Heroes Channel and Destination America. “It is our hope that this timely special Sexual Assault in College: Tamron Hall Investigates, will not only shine a light on the growing number of reports of sexual violence among college students, but will also empower our viewers to demand necessary action be taken to put an end to these attacks, once and for all.”
A partner in ID’s multi-platform public affairs campaign Inspire A Difference, leading advocacy group One Love will provide viewers with information and resources during a Deadline: Crime with Tamron Hall programming marathon leading into the premiere of Sexual Assault In College.
