Annie E. Clark and Andrea Pino
Annie E. Clark and Andrea Pino’s organization End Rape on Campus (EROC) works to end campus sexual violence through direct support for survivors and their communities; prevention through education; and policy reform at the campus, local, state, and federal levels. They envision a world where each individual has an educational experience free from violence, and until then, all survivors are believed, trusted, and supported.
Clark is a lead complainant in the Title IX and Clery Act complaints against the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where she graduated Phi Beta Kappa with a BA in political science. After working with New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, she helped write the bipartisan Campus Accountability and Safety Act. In 2013, she was listed alongside President Barack Obama as one of the most influential forces in higher education, and she is featured in the campus sexual assault documentary The Hunting Ground, which premiered at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival. Pino is coauthor along with Clark of We Believe You: Survivors of Campus Sexual Assault Speak Out. She attended the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where she majored in political science and pursued research on the media’s framing of sexual violence. In 2013, she became the first student featured in the Chronicle of Higher Education’s Influence List and was listed on the Huffington Post’s Most Influential Forces in Higher Ed list. Her work and personal journey are prominently featured in The Hunting Ground.
