Come to our tabling event to find out more about the event, workshops coming up or to find out how you can volunteer.

Sexual violence is a serious issue that affects all of us.  At IUP, we have a strong commitment to address this widespread problem.  Take Back the Night is an annual event designed to raise awareness and support survivors of sexual violence.  Visit the Haven Project's table for more information about this event and win some prizes.

The Haven Project will host a Clothesline T-Shirt Making Workshop on Wednesday, March 29th, 2017 beginning at 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. in the Suites on Maple East building, Room G18. The Clothesline Project is a program started in Cape Cod, MA in 1990 to address the issue of domestic and sexual violence. It is a vehicle for people affected by violence to express their emotions by decorating a shirt. They then hang the shirt on a clothesline to be viewed by others as testimony to the problem of violence. With the support of many, it has since spread worldwide.
