Fraternity’s sexual assault awareness efforts cited in WABI report

Members of the Beta Theta Pi fraternity at the University of Maine spoke with WABI for a two-part report on sexual assaults on college campuses. Every year, the fraternity raises thousands of dollars for Rape Response Services of Bangor during its Sleep Out, according to the report. “We’re making our strong stance against sexual assault,” Dillon Kress of Beta Theta Pi said of the event where fraternity members stay outside overnight to raise awareness and funds for sexual assault services. Fellow Beta member Christian Labonte said the common misconceptions of fraternities drive the group to lead by example.
