We're looking forward to our Sexual Assault Awareness Month events here on campus and in the wider community! 

Here are the remaining events!

Thursday, April 17 -- 4-5pm in Preska 126 -- How to Help a Friend
This event is meant for folks who may have questions about how we can help others who have been victims or are survivors of intimate partner or sexual violence. Bring your questions to this panel of experts and walk away with the tools to help your friend!

 

Friday, April 18 -- 1pm -3pm in Morris Hall 213 -- Violence-Free Zone
This event works in similar ways to the Safe Zone, educating the participants about issues of consent, reporting sexual violence on campus, and advocacy and activism. Registration is required, as space is limited. Please contact laura.schultz-1@mnsu.edu to reserve your spot.

 

Wednesday, April 23 12 Noon, Ballroom Lounge (in front of Ballroom) -- Denim Day
Join us as we make a social statement with our fashion statement as we work to break down rape myths and victim blaming by wearing jeans on this day. To learn more about the case that inspired this day of action, please visit this site.
