It's always good to feel prepared, just in case you find yourself in a bad situation. Today at 4:30 go to WMST and learn about sexual assault and relationship violence at Colgate. Kimmie Garner and Colleen Nassimos will teach you how to be an ally to those who have experienced sexual violence. It's good to have the knowledge needed to help out a friend. And, as the CDC points out quite rightly on their webpage, "The ultimate goal is to stop sexual violence before it begins."
Email Kimmie at kgarner if you're planning on attending. Light refreshments will be served, and campus-wide facilitators from Admissions, Campus Safety, OUS, and The Network for a 1.5 hour training on violence prevention and ally support. This is a wonderful oppurtunity to be a more active participant on Colgate's campus.
