Campus for Consent - GVSU

Campus for Consent - GVSU We are peer educators who aim to increase sexual assault awareness and prevention efforts on GVSU's campus.

We are sexual assault and consent peer educators at GVSU who give presentations to groups on and off-campus, such as living centers, student organizations, classes, & greek life. We also put on awareness events, including Take Back the Night, the Clothesline Project, Rock Against Rape, and Sexual Assault Awareness Week! We have meetings every other Tuesday in KC1142 from 7-8pm. Feel free to come to any meetings to see what our group is about! Not sure about joining, but still want to learn more? Shoot us a message or e-mail us at [email protected].

Mission: The purpose of this organization is to educate students, faculty, staff, and the community about the multiple facets of sexual assault and the available resources for victim/survivors of sexual assault on and off campus. We intend to provide a safe forum for discussion and education. We aim to offer campus-wide outreach to all and to be as inclusive as possible by acknowledging that sexual assault can happen to any persons.

Hi everyone,
It's sad for me to say this, but because of the club's downgrade in members, we were no longer able to continue Campus for Consent.There are still many other support systems at GV with similar goals of Campus for Consent. If you need someone to talk to and feel comfortable doing so or simply want to help in any way, the Center for Women and Gender Equity as well as other campus clubs like Its On Us, are available.

Department of Visual and Media Arts is excited to announce this semester first Visiting Artist Committee artists. fierce pussy

fierce pussy is a collective of queer women artists. Formed in New York City in 1991 through our immersion in AIDS activism during a decade of increasing political mobilization around gay rights, fierce pussy brought lesbian identity and visibility directly into the streets.

Low-tech and low budget, the collective responded to the urgency of those years, using readily available resources: old typewriters, found photographs, our own baby pictures, and the printing supplies and equipment accessible in our day jobs.

fierce pussy projects included wheat pasting posters on the street, renaming New York City streets after prominent lesbian heroines, re-designing the restroom at the LGBT community center, printing and distributing stickers and t-shirts, a greeting card campaign, a video PSA and more recently, various installations and exhibitions in galleries and museums.

Rather than sitting at home fuming about the current state of the world over a bottle of wine or venting your frustrations on Twitter (there's still plenty of time for that, don't worry), helping survivors is a great way to stand beside women and put that negative energy toward something beneficial. http://ow.ly/nlrr30gQq0E
