October Marks Domestic Violence Awareness Month
During the month of October, UNC Charlotte will hold events to raise awareness about issues related to domestic violence and sexual assault and to promote healthy relationships.
Through Thursday, Oct. 6, participants can paint their nails purple, the official color of domestic violence awareness month, and learn how to identify an unhealthy relationship at an information table located at Prospector. On Thursday, Oct. 13, Chi Upsilon Sigma National Latin Sorority Inc. will host "Help Carry the Weight," a demonstration modeled after the activism and art of Emma Sulkowicz. In 2012, after a violent sexual encounter, Sulkowicz, then a student at Columbia University, carried her dorm mattress around campus in response to the university’s failure to acknowledge her assault.
