DISMANTLING RAPE CULTURE CONFERENCE

Conference

Room(s):Davis Student Center - The Grand Maple Ballroom
Contact:Sarah Warrington - 656-2925

Description:This conference will offer an opportunity for training, education and awareness in which participants will consider ways that we might all dismantle rape culture. It will uncover various aspects and systems within society that perpetuate, maintain and sustain rape culture. It will also support both individual and systematic acknowledgment of how we contribute to the perpetuation of a rape culture. Our hope is that attendees will leave with a greater awareness of how our campus and greater societal cultures support violence, as well as a better understanding of how we have power and responsibility to transform it.
