April is Sexual Assault Awareness month, and Colorado State University’s Women and Gender Advocacy Center is taking a stand in support of victims.

The Rocky Mountain Collegian reports that “This year’s calendar has projects “honoring survivors’ experiences and celebrating their healing,” said Kristy Kumar, Assistant Director of Education Programming at the WGAC.”

“Some folks when they think of Sexual Assault Awareness Month they can land in different ways,” Kumar said. “It’s either too close to home or it seems so far away.”

Today is the kickoff of these events, starting with the Survivor Photovoice Project.

The Rocky Mountain Collegian describes this event “helps survivors of interpersonal violence heal through storytelling. The Auxillary Gallery of the LSC will host their portraits and stories opening at 5 p.m MST. Aside from providing an outlet for survivors to share their stories, the Photovoice Project also aims to combat the stigma of sexual assault.”

With workshops for all genders, survivors, and supporters, this is an amazing opportunity to come together as one. The rest of the month’s events are shown below.
