Project SURVIVE, a peer-education program that aims to promote healthy relationships and prevent sexual and domestic violence, is continuing to provide training and employment to students.
This year’s Women’s History Month theme is “We Keep Each Other Safe.” The programming offers a series of 13 free remote events including multiple healthy relationship workshops with Project SURVIVE. The Women’s and Gender Studies department, Women’s Resource Center, Queer Resource Center, and Associated Students have also organized events.
The Women’s Resource Center, Project Survive and Poetry for the People bring awareness to the serious issue of domestic violence.
Ruth Bader Ginsburg is remembered as a woman that opened many doors for equality for both men and women during her political and legal career. She believed in the rights of workers and the separation of church and state.
The Women’s Resource Center on Ocean Campus had events planned to celebrate Women’s History Month. However, due to the coronavirus, these events are postponed. Through the Women’s Resource Center, many women are able to share their thoughts, views, and values from their own experiences. Moreover, women’s resource center creates a valuable environment for City College because it’s the capability to unite and guide women.
Because of funding cuts that took place later in the fall semester of last year, the Women’s and Gender Studies Department has had to cease events and courses related to their multi-campus college sexual violence prevention and healthy relationship promotion program Project Survive.
City College’s Project Survive is hosting its annual Domestic Violence Awareness Month events throughout October by providing workshops on violence prevention and raising awareness on trauma.
