About The Event

On February 13, 2015, 12:00-2:30pm on the Commons, JMU IS RISING! We rise on behalf of survivors of gender-based violence in the US and abroad. We rise to put an end to victim blaming and the culture of impunity that too often silences survivors. We rise to raise awareness of the intersecting forms of oppressions that perpetuate injustice. We rise to illustrate our collective power to BE THE CHANGE! For more information, find us on Facebook (JMU RISING), or contact [email protected]. We will flashmob on the hour (12, 1, 2pm) – visit this link to learn the dance: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jQpttPZqOIw If you or someone you know has been affected by sexual assault or intimate partner violence, CARE (540-568-6411) and the Counseling Center (540-568-6552) are here to help.
