Event description

Description

This event is the third symposium in a series of five designed to increase awareness and collaboration among college students, administrators, faculty, Title IX coordinators, and law enforcement. The goals of this symposium are to improve response to college sexual assault, domestic violence, and stalking and ultimately to promote active resistance to rape culture in all its forms.

Featuring:

  • Savannah Badalich, former student activist and survivor who created Bruin Consent Coalition formerly known as 7,000 in Solidarity: A Campaign Against Sexual Assault – a multicampus sexual assault prevention campaign that combines education, arts activism, and advocacy. Her activism was featured on CNN, Aljazeera America, MSNBC, New York Times, Washington Post, and VICE. She has consulted universities, legislators, activist groups, and the White House on a holistic approach to address campus gender-based violence through policy, awareness, technology, and – most of all – education.

  • Rape Victim Advocates, an independent, not-for-profit organization dedicated to the healing and empowerment of sexual assault survivors through non-judgmental crisis intervention counseling, individual and group counseling, and medical and legal advocacy in the greater Chicago metropolitan area. RVA envisions a world where prevention efforts and global awareness of sexual violence expose rape myths, remove stigmas, eliminate rape and support all people as equal members of society.

  • One Love Foundation: Founded in 2010 to honor the memory of Yeardley Love, One Love works with young people across the country to raise awareness about the warning signs of abuse and activate communities to work to change the statistics around relationship violence.

  • Mira Krivoshey, Senior Health Educator at Loyola University: Loyola's "Pathway of Survivors" is an inclusive, interactive decision-based activity following the scenarios of nine different survivors as they seek help from friends, family, and campus officials. This activity is designed to build empathy and encourage discussion around the difficulties student survivors may face following instances of sexual assault, dating violence, and stalking.
