Stepping Out Against Violence at UNH: RALLY&WALK! 

Save the Date! April 11 | 12:30 on the Great Lawn

This localized social movement aims at gathering students, faculty, staff and Durham community members together to take a collective and powerful stance against all forms of violence on our campus, including violence against women. Violence against victims/survivors results from the use of force or threat to achieve and maintain control over others in relationships, and from societal abuse of power and domination in the forms of sexism, racism, heterosexism, classism, able-bodyism, ageism and other oppressions.

This event will include informational tables, reading of UNH's Community Proclamation Against Violence, a student call to action to end violence at UNH and a 20 minute walk around campus.

This event is sponsored by SHARPP with support from organizations and department at UNH and in the local community.
