Posted on 10/25/21 10:42 AM

IUP Haven Project welcomes back IUP alumna Adrianna Branin, 2019 Biden Courage Award winner, and assistant director of Trainings for It’s On Us, for a presentation on Intimate Partner Violence Awareness and Prevention. 

It’s On Us has grown into the nation’s largest nonprofit program dedicated to college sexual assault prevention and survivor support activating students on hundreds of campuses in awareness and prevention programs.

Through discussion and activities:

  • Attendees will be given the tools to recognize the common signs of an unhealthy relationship
  • Understand ways to intervene when they witness intimate partner violence
  • Learn how to support a friend who is experiencing violence

Those who attend will be challenged to think of how unhealthy behaviors are romanticized in popular culture through music and film.

Haven Project, Pride Alliance, LGBTQIA Support, Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life, and Student Government Association invite you:

Tuesday, November 2, 2021

Time: 

6:00 p.m.–8:15 p.m.
