Preventing Sexual Assault, an on-campus organization, organized the Slut Walk event to call attention to sexual assault on college campuses.
This university has failed to address this epidemic, she added. This university has also made changes.
Sexual assault survivors, advocates and those who wanted to show support for friends and family participated in the walk, taking steps towards changing campus culture. This event provides a safe outlet for students without being directly affiliated with this university, said senior Alex Wilson, a cell biology major and PSA secretary.
Other survivors and those affected by sexual assault also said this event was an opportunity to share their stories and show support. During the Slut Walk, participants also had the opportunity to write letters to Loh about taking action on sexual assault on this university.
The group will continue this letter-writing campaign throughout the semester. Since then, the group expanded to an executive board of 10 people.
We want to show our campus survivors that they are not alone. Search for:.
