Join UHS Survivor Services and Violence Prevention for a series of collective healing spaces and events for survivors of sexual violence and allies to reclaim campus, find community with other survivors and allies, and reduce the stigma around survivorship.
The series will begin with three “grounding” events throughout the spring semester and culminate in April, in recognition of Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM), with a silent gallery experience spotlighting significant historical events related to campus sexual assault activism throughout the last 50 years.
Events are open to any student who identifies as a survivor, ally, or is otherwise impacted by sexual assault/harassment/or dating violence.
Registration is not required.
