Too often do passing remarks carry deeply offensive underlying messages that can demean groups of individuals. The goal of Project Unspoken is to develop a general consciousness of the effects stereotypes and insensitive comments can have on victim-survivors of sexual assault. This project seeks to raise awareness of the deeper, unspoken messages they convey, challenging us to rethink the way we respond to, interact with, and speak of victim-survivors of sexual assault.
By visually displaying quotations provided by students and faculty at GVSU, we hope to create a voice for victim-survivors who have been previously silenced!
Join GVSU Eyes Wide Open as we raise awareness and put an END to victim blaming of victim-survivors of sexual assault. You will be able to view the gallery of photos, visit informational tables, and engage in an interactive presentation, while enjoying complementary refreshments.
