The movement to end sexual violence began with (and continues to be driven today by) community advocacy, student activism, and grassroots community organizing. We invite you to be part of the solution by learning more about sexual violence, sharing what you learned with others, and engaging in direct action opportunities to further cultivate social change. </p><p>For more information regarding this event contact Kristina Marshall at kmmarsha@oaklandcc.edu</p></div><div style="margin: 20px 10px;font-size: 15px;line-height: 22px;font-weight: 400;text-align: left;"><p>Event Presenter:</p><p>Karen Hanks, LMSW works as the Coordinator for the Trafficking Victims Assistance Program at Bethany Christian Services of SE Michigan where she works with foreign nationals who have been trafficked.
