Women’s Resource Center to host Domestic Violence Awareness Month, Breast Cancer Awareness Month activitiesPosted By: Womens Resource Center, September 29, 2014The Women’s Resource Center at The University of Alabama is well underway in preparing for both Dating and Domestic Violence Awareness Month and Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
Each year, the staff and volunteers at the Women’s Resource Center work diligently to plan several events for both of these awareness months. With an already full calendar of events planned for Domestic Violence Awareness Month, Peer Education Coordinator Zoe Storey said, “We are so excited about everything we have coming up for DVAM. We’re hoping to get as many students involved as possible to let people know just how prevalent instances of dating and domestic violence are, and ways we can help reduce that number.”
Throughout the month, the UA community is encouraged to wear a purple ribbon in support of dating and domestic violence awareness through the WRC’s purple ribbon campaign. Students and organizations can place ribbons on reserve by contacting the WRC at (205) 348-5040. Students and community members can also drop off used cell phones, whether working or not, to the WRC or the Dean of Students Office for the Verizon HopeLine. The donated items will be recycled and used to help those affected by dating and domestic violence. A full calendar of events can be found at wrc.ua.edu.
In addition to DVAM, the WRC also hosts several programs in support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. As in previous years, honor and remembrance trees will be placed in various locations around campus as a way to recognize those affected by breast cancer. Pink ribbon ornaments can be customized and placed on the tree in honor of a breast cancer survivor or in memory of those who have passed away due to the disease. Locations include the Student Health Center, the Rec Center, the Ferguson Center and Capstone Retirement Village.
The Women’s Resource Center has also partnered with Dr. Mary Ann Kelly to participate in the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure on October 11 in Birmingham, Ala. Students are encouraged to contact Dr. Kelley at (205) 348-1031 if they wish to participate in the race. In addition to the race itself, the WRC is currently recruiting volunteers to work two fundraising events prior to and after the race day. The first is a spirit night at Chick-fil-A on Skyland Boulevard October 7, and the second is a pancake breakfast at Applebee’s in University Mall on October 25. To find out more information about these events, or to sign up to volunteer, contact Eric Patterson at the WRC at (205) 348-5040.
The University of Alabama Women’s Resource Center, through a focus on gender, fosters a community of social justice, safety, diversity, leadership, and education. This is accomplished by outreach, advocacy, collaboration, and support to individuals and communities of all identities.
