Gendered Violence is EVERYONE’S Problem
Thursday, February 7, 12-2 p.m.
Alumni Lounge, Usdan Student Center
Gendered violence is not “someone else’s problem.” It’s everyone’s problem including yours, as a supporter of social justice. Join us for this compelling two-part session. You will hear from a panel about why they care and what they do about gendered violence. Then participate in breakout sessions with the Boston Public Health Commission, Boston Area Rape Crisis Center, Casa Myrna and the Gay Men’s Domestic Violence Project to discuss ideas like forces perpetuating violent culture, victims, victim blaming, being an ally, and special considerations for vulnerable populations such as LGBTQ individuals with the ultimate goal to prepare you to navigate these issues in a socially responsible way. Refreshments will be provided.
