Film Screening: Confirmation
ASAP partners with UNC's International Film Series to show Confirmation at 6:00pm in Lindou Auditorium (basement of Michener Library).

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 at home--supplies can be picked up at our table in the UC on December 5, 8, & 21 from 10am-2pm and returned to ASAP by March 22 at 5pm to be included on the clothesline. Folks are also welcome to submit stories anonymously via a Google Doc (https://goo.gl/fy4SQv) and an ASAP advocate will decorate a shirt on their behalf. Come see the Clothesline display: 10am-2pm in the UC on March 26 - 27, 10am-2pm in Holmes Dining Hall on March 28, and 10am-2pm in Michener Library on March 29 - 30!

Green Eggs & Consent Video
ASAP is creating a video about consent, using Doctor Seuss' Green Eggs & Ham story as a fun and engaging way to define negotiating consent. The video can be found on Youtube and on ASAP's website so be sure to check it out and share it! Remember, consent is a 'yes' that is freely given, when the option of 'no' is both present and viable.
Wednesday, April 25, 2018
This year, the Assault Survivors Advocacy Program (ASAP) will be hosting Denim Day, which was created to raise awareness about sexual violence and combat victim blaming. This international day of protest was started after an Italian Supreme Court decision in 1993, in which a judge overturned a rape conviction stating, “because the victim wore very, very tight jeans, she had to help him remove them, and by removing the jeans it was no longer rape but consensual sex.” Join us by wearing denim or jeans on April 25th. Take a picture with your group or office and post it on our Facebook event page (UNCO Denim Day Spring 2018) with the hashtag #uncodenimday to show support for survivors! Stop by our table in the UC from 10am-2pm to donate money to the ASAP program and learn how you can support survivors on campus!
