On-Campus Sexual Assault Prevention Educational Forum

Join us for a presentation and Q&A session with Amalia Bob-Waksberg, Outreach Coordinator at Shalom Bayit. Founded in 1992, Shalom Bayit is the Bay Area's resource center for Jewish domestic violence prevention and response. The 1-hour educational version of the film, The Hunting Ground, will be shown to help facilitate a conversation about sexual assault on college campuses.
In the film young female college students who have survived assault share their stories and their own grassroots campaign for change, after their universities ignored them. Sexual assault can happen to anyone, regardless of age, gender, race, or sexual orientation and every person and experience is different. Issues of consent, national statics, campus advocacy and false accusations will be touched upon.
