Open Meeting of the SBA Anti-Sexual Violence Committee – April 4, 2017

Open Meeting of the SBA Anti-Sexual Violence Committee

Join the SBA Anti-Sexual Violence Committee for a discussion on U of T’s new Sexual Violence Policy, and the University’s goals for the education and prevention of sexual violence.

The Expert Panel on Education and Prevention of Sexual Violence at U of T  is currently holding consultations to gather student feedback and recommendations on their sexual violence education and training program on campus. Come join us in discussing the content that you would like to see the Expert Panel prioritize.

Some of the questions we would like to address include:

  1.     What is the SV Policy?
  2.     Why was it created?
  3.     What would members want to see prioritized in the University’s sexual violence education and prevention training modules?
  4.     What would meaningful support for disabled and mad survivors of violence look like in areas of sexual violence education and training on campus?

Students for Barrier-free Access is a student-led disability justice organization that has been actively advocating for a more inclusive Sexual Violence policy and Centre for Sexual Violence Support and Education at the University of Toronto. We are committed to working towards ending campus rape culture.

Please note that while this event is open to all disabled and mad survivors of violence, we seek to centre the voices and experiences of Black, Indigenous and POC disabled and mad survivors. We ask that event attendees be mindful of the space that they are taking in the discussion and support the collective in creating a respectful and meaningful community dialogue.
