Film Discussion: The Hunting Ground
St. Croix Valley Sexual Assault Response Team recently purchased the film The Hunting Ground, in multiple versions! We have the feature film, a one-hour version and a 40 minute version all suitable for high school audiences, university settings, and community discussions.
The Hunting Ground is a documentary that exposes sexual violence as a prevalent problem on campuses of higher education across the United States.
The filmmakers, Kirby Dick and Amy Ziering, interviewed more than 100 students in making the film, 60 of which are showing in the documentary. The students tell their stories, recounting the trauma they endured and show how they took action in order to break the silence about rape on college campuses.

School Based Prevention Education
The St. Croix Valley Sexual Assault Response Team, SART, is committed to ending sexual violence and educating schools and groups alike toward that end. Our goal is to spread the word about issues of sexual assault today and what we can do together through education and increased resources to stop sexual assault. Schools that we have been presenting at have integrated our presentations into their health curriculum throughout the school year. Our Education program is for middle school through high school and into college levels and is offered FREE OF CHARGE to schools. Our Education Program teaches students and community members how to respond to and help prevent sexual violence.
Some presentation topics are:
- Healthy Relationships and Boundaries
- Dating Violence
- How to Help a Friend
- Sexual Assault
- Rape Culture
- And/or a combination of any of the above
We are happy to have an expert be accessible and proactively teach our students about the subject of sexual assault to help prevent it in their future. SART’s presentations have educated hundreds of our students on a subject that hopefully none of them will ever experience. We have heard from a previous student that without this presentation they wouldn’t have known what to do in a situation she was confronted with-proving this was time well spent!
