Sexual Assault Awareness Month will be kicked off on April 4 with the first Teal Tuesday of the month and a talk by Wagatwe Wanjuki, a national campus anti-violence advocate who appeared in The Hunting Ground.
Teal Tuesdays is a national social activism campaign that encourages people to wear teal clothing and/or teal ribbons to demonstrate their support for survivors of sexual violence. Teal ribbons will be available at multiple locations on campus for students, faculty, and staff to wear to spread awareness about sexual violence, demonstrate support for survivors of sexual assault, and promote open dialogue and action to end rape culture.
Plan to attend Wagatwe Wanjuki's talk "Back to Basics: Learning the Truth About Sexual Assault and Rape Culture" at 7 p.m. on Tuesday April 4, in Hodson 110. Many other events are planned during the month to spread awareness about sexual violence and promote open dialogue and action to end rape culture.
More information about sexual assault awareness events at JHU is available on the Counseling Center's website.
