On March 7th Feminist Alliance McMaster (FAM) will be hosting a Rape Awareness Cafe Night at Homegrown Hamilton.

This FREE event seeks to…
> Raise students’ awareness of rape & sexual assault
> Offer information about victim support (Male, Female & Trans)
> Challenge traditional attitudes towards rape
> Confront the myths of ‘stranger danger’, and focus on friend/partner rapes
◦In cases reported to police, 80% of survivors knew their assailant. (Statistics Canada, 2003)

The goal of this free event is to promote rape awareness education within our community with intentions of creating a more mindful and cohesive campus. This event reaches out to men and woman, victims, survivors, friends and family for a stronger, safer campus.

We will be hosting:
>Live bands including local band AV Duo
>Poetry slam and creative writing
>Food and Drinks
>Speaker Dr.Montour, McMaster’s Six Nation’s Family Health Team

So come out, get informed and have fun!!
Together we’ll build a safer, stronger Hamilton.
