Team Robins getting ‘iT’ together

It has been one year since "iT" appeared.  "iT" is sexual assault, and is referred to this way because it's either an uncomfortable topic or too painful to discuss. 

The genderless, faceless symbol, posted at entry control points across Robins, will soon be replaced with permanent metal signs.  

The logo was created last year as part of an ongoing awareness campaign. The figure forms an "i" and "T" to create "iT."

In about a month's time, several organizations came together to cut, weld, sand, smooth and polish 10 metal signs. They included workers from the 402nd Maintenance Support Group, 402nd Aircraft Maintenance Support Squadron and 78th Civil Engineer Squadron. 

"It was a true Team Robins effort to pull all of this together," said Lisa Matney, Robins' Sexual Assault Response Coordinator.

The "iT" campaign strives to change our culture, and the only way to do that is to start talking about sexual assault and prevention. 

It directly impacts mission readiness, and there's no place for it in our military. 

One of the ongoing outreach programs is "iT' Leadership Training. First line supervisors and leaders are welcome to attend. Learn more by emailing

The SARC office, which includes two SARCs, two full-time victim advocates and a deputy SARC who is a military officer, is located in Bldg. 707.  

WHO TO CALL:  If you or someone you know is a victim of sexual assault, call (478) 327-7272.
