GSU Takes a Stand for Domestic Violence Awareness

GSU staff, faculty, and students wear purple to #takeastand against domestic violence! You too can #takeastand by showing your support with Governors State University. Wear purple during the month of October and attend  events hosted by Lamda Pi Eta, Advocating for Sexual Assault Prevention (ASAP), and Health & Student Counseling Center.

"Take A Stand is a call to action meant to bring attention to the issue of domestic violence for Domestic Violence Awareness Month (DVAM) and throughout the year. By taking a stand we intend to remind the nation that there are still countless people--victims and survivors, their children and families, their friends and family, their communities--impacted by domestic violence. We, all of us, should not stop until society has zero tolerance for domestic violence and until all victims and survivors can be heard." - National Coalition Against Domestic Violence
