Are you a student passionate about improving the way colleges and universities prevent and respond to sexual violence, or are you interested in learning more about the issue? Students Active for Ending Rape (SAFER) is a national non-profit that supports and empowers students to reform their schools' sexual assault policies. We would like to hear your thoughts on the current anti-campus sexual assault movement, the culture surrounding this issue on your campus, as well as what resources and support you would need the most to effect change on your campus.
SAFER is hosting a series of listening forums throughout the country thanks to a grant from the Avon Foundation, one of which will occur at the Planned Parenthood NYC offices in SoHo onSaturday October 18th. We will facilitate a forum for students citywide to share their thoughts. We will be documenting our findings in a qualitative research report that will inform changes we make to our student activist trainings and programs next year, which will help us provide the best possible support and resources for students nationwide. Lunch and snacks will be provided to all participants.
If you're interested or want more information, please email SAFER board member Marybeth Seitz-Brown at email@example.com.
