Shatter the Silence lunch hour: Community dialogue on sexual violence

Submitted by Jenna Tripodi

The Center for Advocacy Response and Education, or CARE, will host the second Shatter the Silence lunch hour of the year from noon to 1 p.m. Monday, Nov. 3, in 206 Holton Hall. Any K-State student, faculty or staff member who wishes to be a part of the conversation about addressing sexual violence on college campuses is encouraged to attend.

Sexual violence on college campuses has received a great deal of attention in the national media in the past few months, and the Shatter the Silence lunch hours are a consistent avenue for the campus community to join in the dialogue.

During the lunch hour attendees have the opportunity to discuss openly any thoughts, concerns or feelings they have about the topic. The CARE advocates will be present to facilitate the discussion, answer questions and aid in reflection on the topic.

Additional lunch hours for the 2014-2015 academic year will be Dec. 1, Feb. 2, March 2 and April 6. Anyone who can not attend the lunch hour times but who would like to be involved with CARE's efforts, or would like to speak with an advocate in a confidential setting, is encouraged to contact the CARE advocates at 785-532-5644.
