Umbrella display in Oak GroveWant to help support survivors of sexual and domestic violence? Come to the Oak Grove at 4:00 p.m. on Wednesday, September 14, 2016 to chalk the walk for RAINN Day.

RAINN Day is an annual day of action began by the Rape, Abuse, Incest National Network. RAINN Day aims to raise awareness and educate campus and community members about sexual and domestic violence. We do this by way of creating visual and informative displays, including informational umbrellas and chalking the walkway with empowering sayings. This is to reinforce the message that we support survivors of violence, and that we will not stand for violence on our campus.

Help us create a visual display by chalking the walks of the Oak Grove.

All you have to do is show up! We will provide all the chalking supplies.
