MSU It's On Us Screening of The Hunting Ground

Date: 
Thu, Apr 19, 2018 - 9:00pm to 11:00pm

Join It's On Us and United Brody Black Caucus in watching The Hunting Ground, a documentary about the issue of sexual assault on college campuses across the U.S., and the failure of school administrations to listen to survivors and respond to the epidemic adequately. Although Michigan State is not mentioned specifically in the documentary, recent events like the Larry Nassar scandal and the allegation of rape by members of the MSU basketball team prove that sexual assault most certainly occurs on our campus, and has been a problem for many years.

At a time when reports of sexual abuse by members of our community are rampant yet our school administration is doing little in response, conversation about sexual assault and consent are critical. We invite you to join us in this important conversation! A group-led discussion about consent and sexual assault awareness will be held after the screening.

Free pizza will be offered for attendees to snack on during the screening. Representatives from Damsel In Defense, a company that creates self-defense products for women, will be at the event as well.
