Studies indicate that one in five women will have experienced sexual assault by the time they complete college. We all need to work at keeping our community a safe one for every person, and that’s why April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month.
We’ve organized a series of programs and events at UNC to raise public awareness about sexual violence and to educate communities and individuals on how to prevent sexual violence.
Every person can make a difference when it comes to preventing sexual violence and creating a Carolina community that is supportive to survivors. Please join me by participating in Sexual Assault Awareness month.
Thanks to the dedicated students and staff from the following offices and organizations who have worked on these events: Counseling and Wellness, Office of Fraternity & Sorority Life and Community Involvement, Carolina Women’s Center, Project Dinah, Carolina Against Slavery and Trafficking, and our community friends at the Orange County Rape Crisis Center.
If you or someone you know has experienced sexual violence and needs help, consider calling the Orange County Rape Crisis Center hotline at 1-866-We-Listen or go online to safe.unc.edu.
