Dismantling Rape Culture Conference

Tuesday, April 12, 2016
Dudley H. Davis Center, UVM

The Dismantling Rape Culture Conference (DRCC) strives to educate on and intervene in rape culture, which exists "when prevalent attitudes, norms, practices, and media condone, normalize, excuse, and encourage sexual [and all forms] of violence." This conference is about looking at the intersectional ways in which rape culture exists and about coming together to envision how we can change, shift, alter, and heal from its insidious presence in our lives.
