Resources and information to help ensure that there is no safe haven for predation and sexual assault in our arts communities and organizations. The second in a series of quarterly events, featuring speakers from RPD, UNR, SASS, Crisis Call Center and advocates from all walks of life.
One of the hopes and intended consequences of this Town Hall is to bring awareness of the resources available to people who have experienced sexual assault, their families, friends and advocates. To create environments within the arts community, its works spaces, gatherings, organizations and events that foster support, respect and the safety of all artists and supporters of the arts.
It is our hope that those who express interest in this event, follow through on their personal convictions and act, be present and participate in the Town Hall and add their voices to the cause, in support of their sisters, daughters, mothers, aunts, grandmothers and wives and to teach, inform and educate their sons, brothers, others and fellow creators about the ways that we all can work together to end sexual violence and assault, one person at a time.
The event is on Sunday, January 15, the day before Martin Luther King's birthday (which is a national holiday). This date allows for greater participation, so please mark your calendars and plan on bringing a friend. And thank you for being part of the solution, part of the discussion and part of the healing.
