Sexual assault advocate and educator Juliette Grimmett has been working to make a difference for survivors of sexual violence for more than 18 years. She is the founder of the Chrysalis Network, a nonprofit organization committed to building capacity for response to and prevention of sexual and relationship violence.
Grimmett was raped her first year of college. She will share her story and healing journey since the assault. Participants will leave with an increased awareness around campus sexual assault as well as a call to action for immediate change in their communities.
Campus Safety Week is held in loving memory of former UI student Katy Benoit.
What is "I Got Your Back"?
Students can play a unique role in promoting campus health and safety and that of their peers. UI wishes to support these efforts with additional training and resources. The "I Got Your Back" campaign offers tools to students, faculty and staff to take a stand, look out for each other and celebrate the fact that, at UI, we care about each other.
