Safe2Tell at CU Boulder

Safe2Tell, Colorado’s anonymous reporting platform, allows students, faculty, staff, and community members to safely report safety concerns to people who can help. Up until recently, Safe2Tell was primarily promoted in K-12 settings, but CSPV’s Violence Prevention Project has raised awareness about the platform at CU.
