Canisius’ Sexual Violence Prevention Team and USA co-host film viewing

The campus community is invited to attend the viewing of “Escalation” tonight, Wednesday, February 7 from 5:00 – 6:30 p.m. in the Regis Room of the Richard E. Winter ’42 Student Center.

The 40-minute film chronicles a college relationship from its sweet beginnings through its escalation to abuse.  Following the film, members of the Counseling Center will help facilitate a brief discussion on relationship abuse among college students.

Sponsored by the college’s Sexual Violence Prevention Team and the Undergraduate Student Association, the event coincides with the national #ThatsNotLove campaign, an initiative aimed at ending relationship violence by raising awareness of what abuse looks like.
