Students and alumni on April 16 attended Let’s Talk, a TED-style event in the Max Mutchnick Campus Center aimed at promoting violence prevention as part of Kappa Gamma Chi’s Emerald Empowerment Week at Emerson.

Among the students who participated were Kieran Collier ’16 and Allie Raynor ’16, who each performed spoken word; Alicia Carroll ’15, co-chair of Emerald Empowerment Week, discussed the portrayal of sex and consent in television and how it should be changed.

Alumni Dan Anderson ’14 and Zak Stevens ’14 of Speak About It, a Portland, Maine–based performance troupe that focuses on health and relationship issues, spoke to the audience about their experiences in their unique theatrical work.
