Time: 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.
Location: UWF Commons Auditorium, Building 22

The unifying theme throughout these diverse topics is the assertion that all human beings have the right to be free from violence, the right to be heard and the right to reclaim those rights if they are violated. This year, the event will showcase “Creativity for a Cause” winners, hear from survivors and hold a campus march.
