Monday, October 16, 2017 - Tuesday, October 31, 2017

My Costume is Not My Consent

This campaign raises awareness about consent and breaks down the misconception that clothing or Halloween costumes imply consent.  Look for posters around campus leading up to Halloween and remember that consent is a "yes" that is freely given when the option of "no" is both present and viable; clothing choices never imply consent!

Monday, October 23, 2017 - Friday, October 27, 2017

Breast Cancer Awareness Week

In recognition of October being Breast Cancer Awareness Month, join us in the downstairs of the University Center on Tuesday, October 24, 2017 to color and decorate cards to support patients/survivors of breast cancer and the staff that support them. 

Monday, October 23, 2017 - Friday, October 27, 2017

Sexual Health Awareness Week

Monday, November 6, 2017 - Friday, November 10, 2017

The Clothesline Project

This project raises awareness about gender-based violence and provides a space for survivors to share their experiences.  Survivors will have the opportunity to decorate t-shirts with their stories, and have their shirts displayed on the clothesline.  Allies of survivors can decorate the clothespins that hold up the t-shirts as a symbol of their support.  Survivors can decorate shirts privately in the ASAP office, or can do so at the tabling events.  Folks are also welcome to submit stories anonymously via a google doc (https://goo.gl/GDVo6e) and an ASAP advocate will decorate a shirt on their behalf.  Tabling will be at the UC on November 7, 9, and 10 from 10am-2pm, and at TK Dining Hall on November 6 & 8 from 11am-1pm.

Transgender Day of Remembrance and Resilience

This year the Gender & Sexuality Resource Center (GSRC) & the Assault Survivors Advocacy Program (ASAP) will be collaborating to host this year’s Transgender Day of Remembrance and Resilience. Traditionally, TDOR has been dedicated to the sober reflection of trans lives lost in the last year to transphobic violence. This year, we are adding the second R for “resilience” in an effort to give our transgender siblings something positive to celebrate. Although it is vital to remember those we have lost, it is just as important to support each other and give each other strength to keep fighting.

5:30-6:00pm: ASAP Advocates will be facilitating a workshop centering around sexual violence and oppression in Spruce B.

6:10-7:00pm: light refreshments and an ongoing slideshow presentation about Transgender Day of Remembrance and Resilience in Spruce B.

There will be UNC Counselors and local religious and spiritual leaders who will have a corner in our space for visitors who may want support on TDORR or may just want to connect with local trans-inclusive spiritual communities.
