Sexual Assault Awareness Month exhibit now on display.

Faces of Survival was started in 2004 and is displayed throughout the state. The exhibit uses personal stories and pictures of sexual assault survivors to educate the public about the impact of sexual violence and to combat the stigma surrounding the issue. The Faces of Survival exhibit confronts viewers with the reality of sexual violence and brings to light the voices and faces of survivors, who are all too often kept silent.

Quilts from Central’s Take Back the Night event are on display and add greatly to the impact of the exhibit. Printed materials on campus area resources will be available at the display table.

Come to educate yourself. Come in solidarity. Come to see the truth. Come to witness. You Are Not Alone.

The exhibit is located on the second floor of the Elihu Burritt Library until April 23, 2012.

On Monday, April 23rd 1-3pm on 2nd floor of the Elihu Burritt Library there will be a lecture and activities.
Lecture will be presented by Liz Halla-Mattingly. Liz has previously presented at the True Colors Conference, Transgender Lives Conference, Trinity College and the University of Connecticut
