Harvey Weinstein, Time’s Person of the Year: The Silence Breakers, and the #MeToo Movement. Over the past year, hundreds of survivors have come forward to share stories of sexual harassment, abuse, and assault. Allegations against some of the biggest and most powerful men in our country have us asking, “will this change anything?”
Dr. Dawn Foor, Supervisor of Sexual Assault Prevention Education and an advocate of anti-violence against women for nearly 50 years, will share her journey as an educator and activist. Join us for this thought provoking presentation as Dawn provides insight on her observations of this enormous cultural shift in the past year. 2017 was a year of reckoning, what will 2018 bring?
