33rd Annual Survivor Share and Speak Out Recap

The 33rd Annual Survivor Share and Speak out was November 4th. Here SAPAC's Survivor Empowerment and Ally Support (SEAS) program helped to create a supportive space where survivors where able to share their stories in an open mic format. SEAS also invited attendees to participate in a collaborative art project where they could write messages of support on leaves and place them on a tree that was displayed throughout the event. Some of the messages left include, "I believe you. I support you. You empower me." and "You're not alone."

33rd Annual SAPAC Survivor Speak Out

You are cordially invited to attend SAPAC's 33rd Annual Survivor Share and Speak Out hosted Sunday, November 4th from 6:30-9:00 pm in The League Ballroom.

The purpose of this event is to provide a supportive space for University of Michigan student survivors of sexual assault, intimate partner violence, gender-based and sexual harassment, and stalking to share their personal story and give voice to the complexities, struggles, and triumphs of healing in the wake of sexual violence. We welcome all mediums of expression including stories, reflections, poems, songs, dances, etc. Survivors of all racial, ethnic, religious, gender and social identities are welcome. All members of the campus community are invited to come listen and offer support as survivors are provided a space to use their voice to set their story free.

Networking, Publicity, & Activism Volunteer Program Winter 2016

The NPA's have had such a successful semester! We welcomed over 20 new volunteers to our group, and we're so lucky to have them. With so many new volunteers we were able to table many events this semester, and work towards reaching as many people on campus as possible, one of our main goals. Some of the events we table at include, but are not limited to Winterfest, the Greek Women Speak Out, Take Back the Night, and of course Week of Activism. Usually the NPAs have one large event/project winter semester, but this year we were able to have two.

Networking, Publicity, and Activism in Fall 2015

As the fall semester comes to a close, the NPA (Networking, Publicity, and Activism) volunteers have already accomplished a great deal. First came a number of beginning-of-the-year tabling events. SAPAC tabled for Pride Outside, Pre-Class Bash, Festifall, and a number of other events for promoting SAPAC and educating new and returning students about the resources and services available to them on campus, as well as informing people about the volunteer opportunities SAPAC has to offer.
