National speaker Mike Domitrz discusses sensitive issues in an entertaining manner.
Minnesota State University, Mankato Violence Awareness & Response Program Announcement, 1-21-2016
The following announcement is posted on behalf of the Violence Awareness & Response Program:
- Free Admission
- Event: "Can I Kiss You?"
- Free Admission
- Tuesday, Jan. 26, 7 p.m., Centennial Student Union Ballroom
Mike Domitrz (a leading authority on consent, bystander intervention, healthy dating, and sexual assault awareness) understands college audiences want to be uplifted and entertained - especially when discussing a sensitive issue. They want a compelling and powerful program each person can relate to in a meaningful manner. Plus, students want realistic solutions! For these reasons, Mike will take our students on a journey from hilarious laughter to hard-hitting questions and then provide the answers each student can use in their own lives.
We certainly are looking forward to this event because of its accessibility to students, its rave reviews from other campuses, and its ability to help us change the campus climate to one that is more educated on issues of consent, bystander intervention and supporting survivors. This event is also so important because of new federal guidelines that are requiring that campuses educate their student body on these issues. We invite you to help us be a part of the solution to sexual violence. Students from all cultures, backgrounds, sexual orientations, and diverse populations appreciate Mike's sincerity and honesty.
This program is sponsored by Minnesota State University, Mankato's Violence Awareness & Response Program, Residential Life, and University Security.
