YOUNG WOMEN’S PROGRAM: Designed for high school junior and senior girls
Session I: 10:00 am – 11:00 am
Meeting Room 210AB
Together with Annie Clark, one of the main subjects of award-winning documentary The Hunting Ground, Sofie Karasek founded End Rape on Campus (EROC), dedicated to supporting violence survivors and fighting the battle against sexual assault on campuses across the nation. Sofie, EROC’s director of education, will lead this interactive session to inspire young girls to unify and advocate for themselves and women’s rights. You will not only learn about the facts surrounding sexual violence in high school and college, but you will learn how to make your voice heard and make a change in your community. You don’t need to be in a leadership role at a non-profit to get us closer to ending sexual violence. Your voice and your ideas matter, because you know your school and peers best. Attendees will leave armed and empowered to take charge, amplify their voices and make a change!
