The purpose of the Feminist Union is to promote a feminist space of reflection, action, and self-care at Scripps College and throughout The Claremont Colleges. This new organization plans to foster a practice of community-based self care for each member. Furthermore, the FU advocates for greater structural support of the Feminist, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Department, as it is a source of support, comfort, and care for both students and faculty. The FU hopes to create a space where self-sustainability and grassroots leadership among marginalized communities are supported.
(MCAPS) promotes psychological wellness for students at The Claremont Colleges. A team of psychologists, psychiatrists, and post-doctoral and intern therapists offer support for various psychological issues in a confidential and safe environment.

Scripps Advocates for Survivors of Sexual Assault
Phone line: (909)-214-2138
As of February 15th, Scripps Advocates for Survivors of Sexual Assault began taking calls on our phone line. Scripps Advocates is a new student organization dedicated to providing peer support and information regarding access to resources on and off campus for survivors of sexual assault. Underlying our mission is our belief that sexual assault is a traumatic, power-based incident and that the survivors are the experts on their own experiences.
The student-staffed phone line is active every day from 8:00 p.m. to 8:00 a.m. Each student Advocate has participated in 20+ hours of training in survivor support. Community members can also access our website, www.scrippsadvocates.wordpress.com, for information and additional campus, local, and national resources.
In addition to our support services, Scripps Advocates provides on-campus programming to empower our community. This spring, keep an eye out for events and collaborations focusing on education about sexual assault prevention, power based sexual violence, and consensual sex.
