October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month

Posted by Tim on October 2, 2019 in Event, Student Clubs

October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month, and we’d like to invite you to join us in the many activities taking place at UB this month (click here for event schedule).  TODAY (October 2) our nationally recognized, award winning peer education groups, the UB Men’s Group and the Student Survivor Advocacy Alliance will be holding an all-day event in the Student Union Lobby, and handing out purple bandanas (while supplies last) for folks to wear as a show of support for survivors.  We will also be kicking off our month-long collection of donations for Haven House (our local domestic violence shelter) and Crisis Service’s hospital response comfort kits. For more information, visit the event page: Walk With Me UB.

Please note that we have an On-Campus Advocate from Crisis Services as confidential resources available for UB students, faculty, and staff who may be experiencing domestic violence.  They can be reached at 716-796-4399, or via email at campusadv1@crisisservices.org.  Additional resources are available at buffalo.edu/equity/use
