Coalition in the media + Task Force!

To read a bit about the week of events just hosted by the Coalition and the SFUO Women's Resource Centre, check out THIS piece in Ottawa XPress!

Also, don't forget about the Coalition's Task Force on Gender Based Violence, taking place this Tuesday, February 8 in the Unicentre Atrium at Carleton University.

Here is a recap from a previous post on this blog regarding the Task Force:

For those of you who have never gone to our Task Force before, it's an opportunity for the Coalition for a Carleton Sexual Assault Centre to work directly with students in making campus a safer place. Carleton is not only where we study but for many of us, it's where we work, live and play, too. We all have a vested interest in making it a safe place.

The Task Force will have a few panelists who will be speaking about the issue and giving some context. Then the floor is open!

The purpose of the Task Force is for students, staff, faculty, alumni and friends to speak on their experiences of gender-based violence and their thoughts on how to move forward. The end result is a report that is made public and presented to Carleton University administration and the media.

Have you experienced violence while at Carleton? Do you know someone who has? Did you come to Carleton as a survivor of sexual violence? Do you see a lack of critical academia in your classrooms on gender-based violence? Are you just interested in finding out more about the issue and how you can get involved?

Then bookmark Tuesday, February 8th.
