#UsToo: Community Conversation in Response to #MeToo & Sexual Harassment
December 6, 2017 @ 10:30 pm - December 7, 2017 @ 12:00 am
Over the past few months there has been an incredible movement of women bravely coming forward and sharing their stories of sexual harassment, abuse and assault by well known and well liked individuals in our country and communities. As a result many of us have felt confused, overwhelmed and unsure of how to reconcile the people we thought we knew with the harmful actions they have chosen to engage in. This is a normal reaction but can be difficult to manage alone.
In response, the Advocacy Center invites all those in need of space to share, process, or gain support from others to join us on Tuesday, December 5th from 5:30-7 pm at the Quaker Meeting House;120 3rd Street in Ithaca. This conversation will be informal with support from Advocacy Center staff skilled in working with survivors and educating our community on the issue of sexual violence. We ask all who attend to come in the spirit of kindness, respect and understanding of the complexity of these issues, and a willingness to support one another without judgement. This initial conversation will not be an action planning or formal education session.
