Shatter the Silence Lunch Hour

By Clara Kientz

The April Shatter the Silence Lunch Hour, hosted by the Center for Advocacy, Response and Education, or CARE, will be from noon to 1 p.m. April 13 in 206 Holton Hall. Please note, this is a change from the previously announced date of April 6.

Shatter the Silence Lunch Hour is named in recognition of the cultural norms that encourage individuals to stay silent about the issues of sexual violence. Shatter the Silence is a judgement-free open discussion regarding issues of campus violence and healthy relationships.

The topic for this lunch hour will be "Fifty Shades of Grey." Anyone who has read the book, seen the movie, or has interest in this discussion is encouraged to attend and share their thoughts. Conversations will be regarding the influence or issues this book may have on intimate relationships or the changing culture. Students, faculty, staff and all interested are asked to express their views, concerns and opinions on issues related to the book or film.

Anyone who cannot attend the lunch hour times but who would like to be involved in CARE's efforts, or would like to speak in a confidential setting, is encouraged to contact the center's coordinators at 785-532-6444.
