More must be done to increase the awareness of domestic violence and sexual assault. UM-D in conjunction with WILL (Women in Learning and Leadership), Women’s Resource Center, and Inkster's Delta Alumnae Chapter is hosting an event to help create this awareness. On Thursday October 17, 2013 on the UM-D campus in the IAVS auditorium the event kicks off at 6 p.m. It is aimed at survivors, their supporters, and anyone else who wants to see an end to domestic violence and sexual assault. There will be a rally, a march around the campus and an opportunity for women to share their stories in a safe environment. All they are asking is your time to show these women that they are not forgotten.
October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. HAVEN (a shelter for battered women) has been running an on-campus donation drive. The drive culminates with the Take Back the Night event. HAVEN is another organization dedicated to helping abused women.
WILL is also hosting a workshop titled: Men’s Role in Preventing Sexual Assault. The event will take place on October 16, 2013 in The Victor’s room 118 in the Student Union. So come on out and show your support for a very worthy cause.
