Assault/Handprint Project, Tuesday,

Get in the game!
Sexual assault is
not a "women's issue." Every time a man's voice joins those of
women in speaking out against sexual violence, the world becomes
safer for all of us. The Handprint Project is a way for men to
join the dialogue about sexual violence. This project invites
men to take a pledge to not commit or condone sexual violence
and to seal the pledge by placing their cut-out handprint on a
board that will be displayed at Take Back the Night.
