Just wanted to inform you about the Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign that has been taking place on campus. We will have the campaign in full throttle this upcoming week October 16th-October 21st..... If you click on the link you will find all the events incorporated in the week.
We hope to see you there not only may they count as experiential but you may also donate and help change someones life. We brought this campaign to the Women's center because it is something that is an extremely large issue in the world. As an office that advocate for equitable environment,free from violence and from a feminist perspective ending all forms of oppression I feel physical health is included and was an issue we should advocate for. The bettering of women and men every where who are trapped by the confounds of this diagnosis. I hope you all take the time out to come to our events and support what we are trying to do. We are making a statement and trying to bring about as much awareness as possible.
If you are also interested in joining our OctoberBREAST team for Making Strides Against Breast Cancer and walk with us or donate. You can click the link and find out more about what we are doing.
