Sixth annual program to honor survivors of violence

March 05, 2013

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. -- Penn State’s Center for Ethics and Religious Affairs, and the Center for Women Students will once again host a program to raise awareness about various forms of violence and the incredible journeys of survivors who find a way to move forward despite their pain and struggle. 

The program will take place at 6:30 p.m. April 2, in The Pasquerilla Spiritual Center’s Memorial Lounge. In its sixth year, this event, titled "Honoring Survival: Transforming the Spirit," honors the strength and resiliency of survivors of sexual, emotional and physical violence, and those who support them in their healing process. The intention is to bring these issues to light, focus on the courage and tenacity of the survivors, and highlight Penn State’s resources for those who have been victims of violence. Survivors will tell their stories and about those who support them through poetry, storytelling and music. It will be an evening of empowerment, focused on the healing journey from violence. A reception will follow.
