Domestic Violence Awareness Month
The White Ribbon Campaign encourages the wearing of a white ribbon as a personal pledge to never commit, condone or remain silent about violence against women and girls. Wearing a white ribbon is a way of saying, “Our future has no violence against women.”
Weekly workshops with guest speakers, display tables with preventative information and phone cards with campus and community resources are all a part of the month-long events. Close collaboration with Your Community Connection, a battered women’s shelter, is a regular part of the programs which includes a candlelight vigil.
Purpose: Students will learn how to stay safe, access campus and community resources in the event of abuse and learn how to identify the signs of an abusive relationship.
