In response, Yana Mazurkevich, a 20-year-old student at Ithaca College in New York, created the “It Happens” photo series for a sexual assault awareness media platform called Current Solutions.

“In response to Brock Turner’s early release, this photo series aims to continue the conversation on sexual assault, As well as to raise a huge finger to Turner and his 3-month jail time.”
