Community-Building and Activism Summit on March 29

VPR Summit

The Community-Building and Activism Summit for students seeking to promote nonviolence and social justice will be held Sunday, March 29, on campus.

Emerson’s Violence Prevention and Response is holding its Community-Building and Activism Summit on Sunday, March 29, to collaborate with students seeking to promote nonviolence and social justice.

Any student—including undergraduate, graduate, and international students—is welcome to participate in “ice breaker” activities, games, and group discussions to get to know one another and collaborate on ways to promote a culture of nonviolence and inclusion.

Food will be served at this event, which is scheduled from 1:00 to 5:00 pm. Those interested in attending may RSVP online. The location will be provided to those who RSVP.

The Community-Building and Activism Summit is part of Communities United Against Violence, a month of Emerson and community events and activities that coincides with the national Sexual Assault Awareness Month in April and the White House’s “It’s On Us” sexual assault awareness campaign.

“Advocacy, prevention, and education to foster a safe and violence-free community are paramount to us,” said Melanie Matson, director of VPR. “Everyone deserves to be safe from violence and harm, and everyone can play a role in shaping a community they want to be in. The Communities United Against Violence theme speaks to the number of activities offered by organizations on and off campus to foster a safe, inclusive, and violence-free community.”
