SEMO Rising! and Survivor Speak Out
April 25 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Survivor Speak Out allows survivors to speak (or sing or dance, etc.) their experiences in a safe and supportive environment. Supporters are also welcome during the open mic to voice support and promote awareness (speakers have a five-minute time limit, and no organization promotion is allowed).
SEMO Rising is the local event to create a safe space to empower survivors to share their narratives.
The evening will conclude with a candlelight vigil in memory of those who have lost their lives to sexual violence. The event will be followed by the 1 Billion Rising group dance, “Break the Chain.”
In case of rain, the event will be held in the Student Recreation Center’s West Gym.
