Dear Students,

Please join us in the Goldsmith Family Cinema at 8pm on Tuesday April 28th for a screening of THE HUNTING GROUND. From the Academy Award-nominated filmmaking team behind The Invisible War, comes a startling exposé of sexual assault on U.S. campuses, institutional cover-ups and the brutal social toll on victims and their families. Wesleyan University is featured in this film! (See trailer here: http://www.thehuntinggroundfilm.com/)

 

We will be holding a Q&A panel/discussion after the film for those who are interested in discussing sexual assault on Wesleyan’s campus. This will also be an opportunity to learn about the progress that students and administrators have made toward changing policy and ending sexual assault in our community. 

Panelists:

Equity Compliance Director & Deputy Title IX Coordinator, Debbie Colucci

Student Chair of the Title IX Policy Committee, Rachel Verner ‘15

Student Chair of the Title IX Education Committee, Nikita Rajgopal ‘17

Student Activist and survivor, Karmenife Gomez-Paulino ‘15

Student Activist, Yael Horowitz ‘17

 

Moderator: Student Activist and survivor, Natalie Ancona ‘15

Support: Sexual Assault Resource Coordinator, Alysha Warren

The Hunting Ground FB Event 

As a follow up to this event, the Wesleyan Speak Out Against Sexual and Gender Violence (Part II) will be on Thursday April 30th, 5-8pm in Usdan. Please contact Natalie Ancona at nancona@wesleyan.edu if you’re interested in participating or have any questions about the event. Anyone (students, faculty, staff, etc.) may submit a piece to be read by a student if they are not interested in speaking themselves. Please come and support your community!

We hope to see you at the GFS on Tuesday and in Usdan on Thursday!
