Yesterday, Joyce Walter, Director of Davison Health Center sent an all-campus email alerting the campus that DHC is moving forward with the search for a director of Survivor Advocacy and Community Education, ostensibly to replace Alysha Warren, who was the inaugural Sexual Assault Resource Coordinator/Therapist until she left Wesleyan earlier this fall.
From Students for Consent and Communication:
Take Back the Night is a global movement to end sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, sexual abuse and all other forms of sexual violence. This year, we will march from Olin at 7 (come to poster-making in 200 Church the night before!!) to Foss for some student performances. At 8:30, we will have our first speak out circle on the CFA green, where survivors or friends can share their stories of sexual violence in a safe and non-judgmental space. After the speak out circle, the group will circle back to Andrus for a second speak out circle and a candlelight vigil. There will be a debriefing session in the DFC afterwards.
If you want to share a personal story of sexual violence in the speak out circles but would rather it be anonymous, you can submit it to this link and another person will read it for you at the event.
SFCC will be tabling for the event 4/25-4/28 11-2pm in Usdan if you have any questions/ want to pick-up some dope stickers and buttons.
PERPETRATORS NOT WELCOME

I highly recommend everyone attend this event. I certainly will be there. Courtesy of Jack Spira ’16:
I would like to invite all students on campus to attend a Forum on Sexual Assault on Monday, April 21st, at 8 PM. The Forum will cover:
- Social Spaces and Greek Life
- Survivor Support
- Reporting/Judicial Policies
Along with those three topics, all attendees will be given basic information in Bystander Intervention Training, one of the few tools that we can all use to help stop sexual violence on our campus. The goal of the Forum is to come up with solutions and idea on how we, as a community, can help support survivors and prevent further sexual violence from happening anywhere in our community. To that end, members of the administration will be present, but this event is truly for students to get together and talk about how we can all help each other in a non-confrontational way.
