KSUnite breakout sessions: Sexual violence

Submitted by KSUnite Planning Team

As part of KSUnite: Moving Forward Together on Wednesday, Nov. 6, two sessions will focus on sexual violence.

  • "#MeToo @ K-State," presented by Clara Valadares Kientz, assistant director, and Stephanie Foran, advocate/educator, both with the Center for Advocacy, Response and Education.
    #MeToo @ K-State seeks to challenge the harmful myths and misconceptions about sexual violence that make it easier for perpetrators to get away with crimes and harder for survivors to be believed. Participants will learn about the unlikelihood of false reports, how rape culture is embedded in our everyday lives, how trauma affects the brain, and ultimately walk away with knowledge on how we as K-State Wildcats can be effective in creating culture change.
  • "KSU Says No More," presented by Polina Nations, undergraduate in social work and gender, women, and sexuality studies.
    Presentation that discusses statistics related to sexual and domestic violence on college campuses — specifically information crime reports from here at K-State — allows for active conversations about myths associated with sexual assault and domestic violence, the message and meaning of the No More campaign and its work on K-State campus, and finally resources and a message that challenges students from all backgrounds to empower others to be engaged in a movement to end sexual assault and domestic violence by being a prosocial bystander or an advocate; therefore transforming K-State into a culture of consent.
