SAPAC's Fall Semester Ally Training will take place on Sunday, November 24th, from 9:30 AM to 4:30 PM in the CSG Chambers of the Michigan Union!
What is Ally Training?
The SAPAC Ally Training Program seeks to empower participants with the knowledge, awareness, and skills needed to be actively involved in the movement to end sexual and intimate partner violence. The SAPAC Ally Training Program is a great first step in receiving basic training regarding these issues and becoming a supporter of the movement.
What will be covered?
The SAPAC Ally Training Program aims to provide participants with a basic knowledge of sexual and intimate partner violence as well as skills that can be used in the movement to end sexual and intimate partner violence. We will explore issues of sexual and intimate partner violence (including sexual assault, intimate partner violence, stalking, and sexual harassment), rape culture, supporting survivors, and healthy relationships. The curriculum includes general information presentation, mixed media presentation, interactive role plays, and group discussions. Facilitators aim to challenge pre-conceived notions while creating a safe and open environment that fosters discussion.
Who can attend Ally Training?
The SAPAC Ally Training Program is open to all members of the University of Michigan community, including students, faculty, and staff.
