Activities for the month:
April 16 - 7 p.m.
Community members will be able to talk about the services that Shelter, Inc. offers and their importance—including work being done with ACC to prevent and appropriately respond to sexual violence on campus. Community members will be able to describe sexual violence as a spectrum of attitudes, beliefs and behaviors. Community members will be also able to identify ways they can contribute to preventing sexual violence and how to help someone who experienced it. This forum will be moderated by Ashley McDowell of WBKB and will feature panelists from the Alpena Police Department, ACC, Shelter, Inc., and legal representatives.
April 21 - 2 p.m.
Film Screening "The Hunting Ground"
A group of organizers representing Shelter, Inc. and Alpena Community College will facilitate a discussion after the film. Counselors and Advocates will be available after the viewing for anyone who wishes to ask questions or receive support.
Denim Day campaign was originally triggered by a ruling by the Italian Supreme Court where a rape conviction was overturned because the justices felt that since the victim was wearing tight jeans she must have helped her rapist remove her jeans, thereby implying consent. The following day, the women in the Italian Parliament came to work wearing jeans in solidarity with the victim. Peace Over Violence developed the Denim Day campaign in response to this case and the activism surrounding it. Since then, wearing jeans on Denim Day has become a symbol of protest against erroneous and destructive attitudes about sexual assault. In this rape prevention education campaign we ask community members, elected officials, businesses and students to make a social statement with their fashion by wearing jeans on this day as a visible means of protest against the misconceptions that surround sexual assault.
April 29 - 8 p.m.
Community Candlelight Vigil
BTC Lobby & Courtyard
This event is open to the public. We will gather to celebrate those who have survived sexual violence and honor the memory of those who lost their battle with it. We will do this with speakers, poetry and music. It is an event to unite and heal together as a community dedicated to ending sexual violence entirely.
