Day of Silence

Submitted by Shanese McGregor

The K-State Center for Advocacy, Response and Education, or CARE presents Day of Silence. Day of Silence is a national event where many students and educators across the nation will take a vow of silence to highlight the silencing and discrimination of underserved populations. 

This year during Sexual Assault Awareness Month, or SAAM 2018, CARE has partnered with LGBT Resource Center, Academic Achievement Center, Housing and Dining Services, Counseling Services, Student Access Center, Office of Institutional Equity, Diversity and Multicultural Student Affairs, and various affinity groups to bring Day of Silence to K-State. The groups will recognize underserved populations who have been involved in violence and discrimination by having a photo shoot activity from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Friday, April 27, Bosco Plaza. The event will show solidarity and represent those who have been silenced.

CARE advocates are available to meet with K-State students, faculty and staff members who have been affected by sexual violence, dating or domestic violence, stalking, or sexual harassment. Advocates offer confidential support and aid survivors in exploring their options.

For more information or to set up an appointment, call 785-532-6444 or email ksucare@k-state.edu.
