Walk a Mile

Although these are some scary statistics and stories, this is an issue that has been and continues to affect women, especially those in college and younger. If you have a few minutes, I highly recommend checking this out and taking the time to read a little bit about it.

In an effort to reach out to women (and men) on campus and educate them about these issues, as well as provide support services, UMKC received the Department of Justice Violence Against Women Campus Grant, which funds the Violence Prevention and Response Project. If you or someone you know is a victim or survivor of sexual violence, dating or relationship violence, or stalking, please know there is someone here to help.

The VPR project also provides education and training, and puts on programs such as Walk a Mile in Her Shoes, which will take place on September 25. We hope you will join us in our efforts to end violence against women!
