Caldwell, N.J. –March 27, 2019 – Caldwell University will mark Sexual Assault Awareness Month with events including “Walk a Mile,” which will be held on Monday April 8, 2019 at 11:30 a.m. beginning at the Newman Center Plaza at the university. Caldwell’s theme for the month is “It’s On Us.”
“At this lively Walk-a-Mile kick-off event, participants will pledge themselves to walk for a woman in their lives who have been impacted by sexual violence. While we know that sexual violence affects everyone — given Caldwell University’s rich history as an all-female institution, Walk-a-Mile will honor our past, while looking ahead at what each of us can do to help prevent sexual violence,” said Abdul Staten, director of Student Advocacy and Prevention Awareness.
The event is being sponsored by Athletics, the Office of Student Engagement and Student Advocacy & Prevention Awareness.
“During Sexual Assault Awareness Month, Caldwell University will hold events to celebrate, honor, and champion survivors of sexual violence. Because prevention is key, we recommit ourselves to building mechanisms whereby our entire community can participate in preventing sexual violence as well as other forms of interpersonal violence,” said Staten.
