Upcoming Events: Sexual Assault Awareness Month 2024


April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month in the United States. Sexual violence is a systemic issue that impacts all member of our community, either directly or indirectly. Some of us have experienced sexual violence ourselves, and many others have friends, family members, peers and colleagues who have faced sexual violence. People of all identities and backgrounds experience sexual violence, and we recognize that experiences of violence are additionally impacted by systemic oppression. 

As part of our community's commitment to social justice, we acknowledge the ongoing and pervasive harm of sexual violence, and we work to support those impacted and center their experiences. 

Throughout April, PARC, in collaboration with campus partners, will host events, trainings and social media campaigns to raise awareness of the topic of sexual violence. Please join us for the following events:
