Annie Forrest, Theta Zeta, University of Virginia, received the “Act/Honor/Hope” award from the Virginia Sexual and Domestic Violence Action Alliance in December 2015. The Action Alliance describes the award as "honoring individuals who have taken extraordinary action as advocates to effect positive change in public policy." This annual award was presented to Annie for her testimony to the Virginia General Assembly (both Senate and House of Delegates) during the 2015 session. Annie is a survivor who stepped forward with a strong voice on behalf of all college students to demand that the Virginia General Assembly carefully considered the impact of their actions as it crafted new legislation in 2015 to address campus sexual violence.
