Sexual violence is an epidemic that has plagued our communities and gone unaddressed for too long. Within the past year, sexual assault has come to the forefront of the media with the #Metoo movement and political upheaval around the Kavanaugh hearings. The Sexual Assault Resource Center's support line saw an increase in calls of over 166 percent in the week of the Kavanaugh hearings. People need a safe space to discuss sexual violence and move toward its prevention. This program seeks to provide that space with guided discussion around the issues at the root of sexual violence: oppression, gender roles, stigma, and romance. This program is supported by a Public Program Grant from Oregon Humanities.
