Witnesses Didn't Help Rape Victim

Here is this semester's first installment of SAPAC's Networking, Publicity, & Activism program's Continuing Education. The NPAs present an article, advertisement, or other source of information at our weekly meetings to keep the group updated on current stories and issues pertaining to sexual violence, gender, empowerment, and feminism. The following link is to a horrifying story of a 15-year-old girl who was beaten and raped by multiple people after a school dance last weekend.

Not only did this terrible event occur, but the school district spokesperson had this to say about it:

Come speak out against sexual violence and support survivors at SAPAC's 23rd Annual SpeakOut! coming up on November 12 at 7:30pm in the University of Michigan League Second Floor Ballroom. SAPAC's SpeakOut! provides a safe, respectful, and affirming space for survivors of sexual violence to tell their stories. All are welcome.
