April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month. The Canisius College Sexual Violence Prevention Team (SVPT) is recognizing Sexual Assault Awareness Month using the theme “Embrace Your Voice.” Our Step Up! Griffs Peer Educators are sponsoring a photo campaign where members of the Canisius community are given the opportunity to have their photos taken and posted, encouraging victims of sexual assault to “Embrace their Voice.” Photos will be displayed in the library along with resources throughout the month of April. Students, faculty and staff will also have the opportunity to write messages of support and advocacy for victims of sexual assault.
The mission of the SVPT is to cultivate a campus environment where students feel safe to live and learn. Any student who is interested in applying to be a Step Up! Griff Peer Educator can contact Ivy Wang, Counseling Center Outreach Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org.
