The first 6 to 8 weeks at college can be the most exciting and challenging for a first year and transfer student. There is a lot to know about sex, alcohol, getting consent, relationships and personal safety. Check out our informational tables around campus and we will see you at WildActs performances and the All First Year Student Meetings at the Whitt! Be on the look out for our “Wildcats Get Consent” lemonade cart around campus too!
SHARPP needs both Peer Advocates and Community Educators to help us fulfill our mission of providing direct services to survivors, their friends and families and education and outreach to the UNH community. Both volunteer programs play an important role in addressing violence at UNH. Follow this link for more information!
“The “2nd Annual Be BRAVE Gala" will be an evening of classical and contemporary dance, live music, martial arts, and more. This multi arts evening's goal is to uplift and encourage survivors to be brave, be honored, and take a small step forward in their healing process. All proceeds will be going to: SHARPP, CCCNH, and HAVEN.
Spearheading this event is Lissa Curtis who is a UNH alumni, professional ballerina, and rape survivor. She went to Romania in 2014 to the World Ballet Competition and was raped by her coach for ten days. She started the “Be Brave" campaign to encourage victims to come out of silence and fight for justice. For more on her story visit www.lissacurtis.com.
The cast will include performances by Lissa Curtis, Zachary Silk (Lissa's brother), Northeastern Ballet Theatre, Quest Martial Arts Academy, Dance Prism, Not Too Sharp, Sentinal Canine Academy, Fabianna Marie, Kelley Plante, Greg Hopkins, Assaf Benchetrit (UNH's Ballet Director), Camilo Cardenas Herrera (Columbia City Ballet), and more international ballet guest artists to be announced soon!
The event is sponsored by SHARPP and the UNH Department of Theatre and Dance
