UH Hilo Sex Assault Awareness Month Events–April 2016

1 in 5 women and 1 in 33 men have been sexually assaulted while in college (Krebs et al., 2007).

UH Hilo’s Student Health & Wellness Programs’ Men of Strength invites you to join us for the following events in commemoration of Sexual Assault Awareness Month. The events are free and open to UH Hilo and HawCC students, faculty, and staff, and the general  public.

1.     7th Annual Slam Against Violence featuring. Darron Cambra, Wednesday, April 6, 2016 at 5PM in Campus Center Room 301.

April is National Poetry Month and Sexual Assault Awareness Month–celebrate both by joining us for an evening of inspiration & entertainment as we seek to end violence against women through creative expression & financial support for the YWCA of Hawai’i Island Sexual Assault Support Services.

Bring a Poem that makes the world safer for our community – it can honor a woman in your life, expose the tragedy of sexual assault, or simply encourage respect! The top poets will earn prizes, and funds will be raised for the YWCA Sexual Assault Support Services
