Throughout the year, Auburn will continue to train students on Bystander Intervention.
The following is a listing of April 2013 SAAM events and their descriptions:
These Hands Don’t Hurt!
Haley Center Concourse
These Hands Don’t Hurt is an awareness campaign where individuals will be pledging to stop relationship violence by placing their hands in paint and making their hand print on paper, then signing their name under their hand print and displaying it on the Haley Center Concourse. Doing this signifies that their hands don’t and won’t hurt.
The Clothesline Project
Student Center Greenspace
The Clothesline Project is a two day event addressing the issue of sexual assault and violence. It provides a vehicle for individuals affected by violence to express their emotions by decorating a t-shirt that is then hung on a clothesline to be viewed by others as a testimony to their experience. This is a powerful demonstration that provides awareness and education about all issues of sexual assault and violence. Anyone can make a shirt, even if they are not survivors themselves. Many people come out and dedicate a shirt to someone they love or survivors of sexual assault as a whole. The experience serves as a reminder to survivors that they are not alone.
Take Back The Night
Take Back the Night will be an event that honors survivors of sexual assault and relationship violence. There will be a candlelight vigil and an opportunity for attendees to share their personal stories and experiences.
