In honor of Sexual Assault Awareness Month in April, join SHARPP and the UNH Community for the:
2015 Stepping Out Against Violence at UNH: RALLY&WALK! April 9, 2015
The Great Lawn in front of DeMeritt (rain location MUB Strafford Room)
ANTI-VIOLENCE RALLY&WALK!
This localized social movement aims at gathering students, faculty, staff and community members together to take a collective and powerful stance against all forms of violence on our campus, including violence against women. Violence against people results from the use of force or threat to achieve and maintain control over others in relationships, and from societal abuse of power and domination in the forms of sexism, racism, heterosexism, classism, able-bodyism, ageism and other oppressions.
 
This event will include informational tables, a reading of UNH’s Community Proclamation Against Violence, a student call to action to end violence at UNH and a 20 minute walk around campus and new this year, Phi Mu Delta’s “Hot Dogs, Hot Consent” free hot dog stand!

This event is sponsored by SHARPP with support from organizations and department at UNH and in the local community.



2015 UNH White Ribbon Campaign
UNH Men are Part of the Solution!
Join UNH men for the month of April for campaign awareness for the White Ribbon Campaign.
The White Ribbon Campaign is the world’s largest movement of men and boys working to end violence against women and girls, promote gender equity, healthy relationships and a new vision of masculinity.
During the month of April, The UNH White Ribbon Campaign works towards inspiring men at UNH to “Be Part of the Solution” of helping to end violence against women on campus and throughout their lives. It’s about being part of the conversation towards change in what it means to be a man, offering tips on how men can help end sexual assault and harassment, and asking you to know when to engage and speak out against violence against women.

“Never commit, condone, nor remain silent about violence against women”

Our goal for 2015 is to get 25% of the male population (slightly over 2,000) at UNH to take the online pledge. That means students, staff and faculty and if you took the pledge last year, we ask that you take it again. We are looking to all UNH men to participate and we are asking UNH women to encourage men to participate. Although this is a campaign for men, SHARPP is also encouraging women to wear teal ribbon pins (teal represents sexual assault and relationship abuse awareness). Individuals can also pick these up at our table in the MUB or at the SHARPP office.


 

 
Sexual Violence Awareness:Film Series

It was rape: a movie

Tuesday, April 14: MUB Theater I,  6:00 PM     
IT WAS RAPE   
Rape is wrong, illegal, reprehensible—and yet still tragically common. In this film, eight women tell their diverse personal stories of sexual assault, from a Midwestern teenager trying alcohol for the first time to a Native American woman gradually coming to terms with her abusive childhood. Gripping and emotional, this film is an opportunity to empathize with people—not just absorb faceless statistics—and to puncture the silence and denial that allow sexual assault to thrive. Ultimately, these stories shed light on how this epidemic affects us all.
