Happy Midweek Bobcats 🐾!! Here is an informative event you don’t have to miss!!

Dear Bobcat Community,

With the help of one brave student survivor, Brie Sivy, “Start by Believing” – first brought to campus by the Ohio University Police Department (OUPD) and the Survivor Advocacy Program (SAP) – is going strong at Ohio University. Brie has been publicly speaking and sharing her story alongside Detective Mathew Austin of OUPD and Kim Castor of SAP since 2018.

We would like to invite you to witness her story and the survivor-centered process Brie experienced in action during the free screening of “Start by Believing: The Power of a Survivor-Centered Process Documentary” from 7 to 9 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 19 at the Athena Cinema.

There will be a question-and-answer session immediately following the 30-minute film, with Director of OHIO’s Survivor Advocacy Program Kim Castor, student Brie Sivy, and OUPD Detective Mathew Austin.

To learn more about the screening and view a preview, you can read this article. If you're unable to make it to the screening, the full documentary will be available to view on Survivor Advocacy Program's website beginning the following day.

We hope to see you at the documentary screening. Remember to support your fellow Bobcats and always start by believing.
