In honor of Sexual Assault Awareness Month, TCNJ Anti-Violence Initiatives is releasing their own version of the “1 is 2 Many” PSA. Directed and coordinated by Mary Burns and Kyle Bennion, the PSA raises awareness about sexual assault on college campuses, promotes bystander intervention, supports victims and survivors, and encourages active leadership in violence prevention. I am so lucky to work with such an amazing group of students and staff. Thank you for your leadership.
Check out this TED talk from Jackson Katz: Violence Against Women: It’s a Men’s Issue. Domestic violence and sexual abuse are often called “women’s issues.” But in this bold, blunt talk, Jackson Katz points out that these are intrinsically men’s issues — and shows how these violent behaviors are tied to definitions of manhood. A clarion call for us all — women and men — to call out unacceptable behavior and be leaders of change.
