Are you an undergraduate student currently residing in or around New York City? SAFER has teamed up with NOW-NYC and A Long Walk Home for FlipIt: Students Organizing Against Violence, a free, one-day student summit and interactive workshop focused on campus organizing, policy reform, and using art for social change. Students of color, students with disabilities, LGBTQQI students, and men are encouraged to apply. I’ve included a brief summary of the day’s activities below, but you can head over to the conference’s Facebook page to learn more.
• Receive in-depth training on sexual assault and campus policy with anti-violence and advocacy experts
• Build a new school peer-group that will work together to make change on your campus
• Connect with local organizations and leaders in activism
• Become part of a new city-wide network of students and student leaders working to stop sexual assault
The event will be held at Pace University on April 14, 2012, but the application deadline is right around the corner. Make sure to apply by March 12, 2012!
