Asking for help is one of the hardest things to do. When you are asking for help about an issue that might feel really private, confusing and/or embarrassing, it is important to get support that is judgemental, without pressure, and informed.
Supporting a Survivor Workshops
This workshop provides some foundations for supporting survivors of sexualized violence. Throughout the workshop we will discuss different approaches and tools that can be used when supporting someone. Workshops are offered several times throughout the fall and winter semesters, are open to everyone, and are free of charge.
Sexualized Violence Awareness Week
A whole week of activities, events, and workshops dedicated to increasing awareness of how to create a campus culture of consent, talking about what sexualized and gender-based violence are, and learning about how to support survivors. This week is a collaboration between AVP, UVSS, and the Student Life Office (UVic).
The Men’s Circle
The Men’s Circle at UVic aims to challenge gender-based violence and dominant constructions of masculinity. These gatherings are open to all men and masculine identified people (not just students!) so come and bring a friend or two!
