April 1st, begins Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM) when organizations across the country host events and programs to educate the public about sexual assault and provide outreach to survivors of sexual and interpersonal violence.
We cannot win this fight without you, and we invite you to stop into our office in Wolff House, or take a look through our website to learn more about sexual and interpersonal violence, how you can join our team to support survivors of interpersonal violence, and how you can join our team to end this public health epidemic. Below is our month long list of events so please join us and spread the word.
We will be tabling for SAAM every Tuesday & Thursday in April | 12:30-2pm at the MUB Union Court. Stop by to learn more about Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM) and our services. There will be free giveaways, lemonade, and more!
Check out our interactive exhibit at the UNH Library (2nd floor) and find out what it's all about.
Catcalls, sexist or sexual comments, homophobic and transphobic slurs, flashing, groping, stalking, and assault in public spaces. Gender-based street harassment is a global problem. It makes us feel less safe, it restricts where we go. IT MUST END. [source: stop street harassment].
Being a part of the UNH community means living by a collective standard: we relate to each other with respect and responsibility to make UNH a better, safer, more inclusive community. We believe and support friends and community members that have been harassed and we hold others accountable for their inappropriate behaviors. This is the culture at UNH and this is what it means to be a Wildcat.
Many thanks to the UNH Library for sponsoring this exhibit.
The UNH Community Stepped Out for our 9th Annual Anti-Violence Rally & Walk. This social awareness event aims at gathering students, faculty, staff and community members together to take a collective and powerful stance against all forms of violence on our campus, including sexual violence and relationship abuse.
This event included info tables, a reading of UNH’s Community Proclamation Against Violence, our guest speaker Sage Carson from the national organization Know Your IX, a student call to action, and a walk around campus to spread the word of Ending Violence at UNH.
Stop by UNH SEAC's Solarfest for live music, dancing, food, and more! SHARPP will be setting up a visual display of t-shirts made by survivors of sexual assault and relationship abuse. Each t-shirt is anonymously made by former and current UNH community members who have chosen to share their story and spread awareness about the issues of sexual violence and relationship abuse.
