Description: 

In honor of Sexual Assault Awareness Month, SHARPP cordially invites the University of New Hampshire Community to the 1st Annual Taking a Community Stance: Stepping Out to Speak Out Against Violence. 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. This event will include informational tables, a 20 minute walk around campus, reading of UNH’s 1st Community Proclamation Against Violence and a student call to action to end violence against women at UNH.
 
This event is open to the UNH and Durham community. 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.
