During October, the Women and Gender Resource Center sponsors a variety of awareness events such as the purple ribbon campaign, the Verizon HopeLine Phone Drive and other programs. Past events have also included a candle light vigil honoring victims and survivors, student led panels on media portrayals of domestic violence, and relevant film screenings.
The 2018 Domestic Violence Awareness Month Lineup will be released in September 2018.
Last year, Domestic Violence Awareness month included a Zine Making Workshop hosted in partnership with URGE, a benefit night at BurgerFi to raise money for the Project Hope Scholarship, SGA’s annual It’s On Us week, and a Student Leadership Council panel called Reel Stories. Alabama Panhellenic Association also hosted speakers Becca & Kelly. We also hosted an event called Healing Through Art which highlighted the benefits of art therapy.
For staff, faculty, and graduate students specifically, a Domestic Violence Harbor Training was offered and EveryWoman Book Club read “The Twilight Wife” by AJ Banner
