To initiate a conversation and education on sexual violence on campus, WeARE, in partnership with CLC, is sponsoring an education forum on ‘Dismantling the Rape Culture’ on Wednesday, April 25th from 6:30 – 8:00 p.m. at the CLC Lecture Hall E-354. We are pleased to bring an expert on this important topic, Professor Kari-Shane Davis Zimmerman (see bio below) to lead this education event.
The lecture will be followed by a panel discussion including local, influential community leaders.
