SAVE Task Force would like to thank everyone who participated in Domestic Violence Awareness Week of Action events. In a symbolic display of our refusal to accept domestic violence in our society, 104 students, staff, and faculty members participated in “Take a Stand Tuesday.” Throughout the week, 97 LLCC community members pledged to use their education, experiences, and voices to be active in the fight against all forms of sexual violence, including domestic and intimate partner violence. Jeans Day raised $175, which the Feminist Activist Coalition will donate to Sojourn Shelter and Services, a local domestic violence shelter and service agency. Through the stories and pledges shared by participants, it is now clearer than ever that we are a community of engaged and thoughtful citizens, activists, survivors, and supporters.
If you have not yet taken the pledge and wish to do so, we encourage you to download the pledge here and return it to Shelby Bedford in Menard 1143 (across from Admission & Registration).
Special thanks to those who signed up to take a stand throughout the day, ensuring someone was representing the movement at all times during the day on Tuesday:
Chris Barry, Deborah Brothers, Shanda Byer, Tammy Chrisler, Becky Croteau, Esteban Cruz, Lesley Frederick, Lindee Hall, Ryan Howland, Valerie Howse, John Paul Jaramillo, Leslie Johnson, Judy Jozaitis, Amandeep Kaur, Brandon Lewis, Susan Mendenhall, Michael Phelon, Eileen Tepatti, Marie Watson and Lynn Whalen, Beth Wiediger, Amanda Wiesenhofer, Marina Wirsing.
