Sexual Assault Awareness Week
Georgia Southern University’s Sexual Assault Awareness Week is an annual campaign to raise public awareness about sexual assault and educate communities and individuals on how to prevent sexual violence. This year, we will continue to display the Clothesline Project as well as present Take Back the Night and Creating Champions. See below for more information.
The Clothesline Project
Monday through Friday
Statesboro Campus Locations: Russell Union, Henderson Library, RAC and Pedestrium
Armstrong Campus Locations: Student Union, Lane Library and Learning Commons
The Clothesline Project is a campus-wide display of t-shirts representing survivors and supporters of sexual violence. Students are able to create new t-shirts each year, which are saved to become part of future displays. The displays provide a visual representation of the incidence rates of sexual violence.
Creating Champions – Virtual Training
Wednesday, 2/24 from 5:30 PM to 8 PM via Zoom
The Creating Champions workshop is a three-hour interactive and informative program. Created for male-identified individuals, we can confront challenges due to harmful gender norms while restructuring the concept of masculinity through mindful and intentional evaluation. The program is designed to help deepen understanding, gain new perspective, identify harmful societal norms, and provide tips, tools, and inspiration to empower everyone to make a difference, every day.
Take Back the Night – Virtual Event
Thursday, 2/25 at 7:00 PM via Zoom
Take Back the Night is a virtual event to raise awareness about sexual violence. It is an opportunity to foster empowerment and civic responsibility.
We are currently seeking speakers! Students are encouraged to register to share a spoke word, poem, quote, or any other meaningful text at Take Back the Night. Submit an application to speak at Take Back the Night today!
Take Action Campaign
The Take Action Campaign is a virtual movement aiming to prevent sexual assault in America. We all have the ability to look after each other, take the vow to take action and intervene as a bystander. Your actions could prevent the next act of sexual violence in America or save someone’s life.- Snap a picture with the Campaign poster and post to your social media using the #TAKEACTIONCAMPAIGN
