[PAST EVENT] Take Back the Night: A Faculty/Staff Response

April 20, 2017
7pm - 9pm
Andrews Hall, Room 101
605 Jamestown Rd
Williamsburg, VA 23185Map this location

Faculty and staff are welcome to attend the all-campus Take Back the Night speak-out at 7 PM in Andrews Hall. At 8 PM, faculty and staff will walk across the courtyard to Swem Library, where we will convene on the 3rd floor in the Brown Board Room from 8 PM - 9 PM (this room houses the circular window that you can see above the Swem entrance).

Join our new Sexual Assault Prevention Specialist (Mayanthi Jayawardena) and the Chair of the Virginia Campus Task Force to Prevent Sexual Violence (Eric Garrison), as we support the survivors among us and discuss how to help make this campus safer for all, regardless of an individual's role here.

This will be our third year being there for each other and brainstorming ways that we can contribute to deconstructing the rape culture here. The conversations have been productive in the past (with WMPD, ROTC, EqualityWM, and others present), and we expect them to be ever so visionary again.

Thank you for supporting W&M, and we look forward to seeing you Thursday night: with the university Community at 7 PM in Andrews 101 or just with us faculty/staff at 8 PM in the Brown Board room at 8 PM or perhaps both. If you can only do one event, please pick the one that feels healthiest for you. 


Please email [[w|mayanthi, Mayanthi Jayawardena]] or call her on 757.221.3229 for more information.
