    Discrimination and Sexual Violence

    A post-screening  discussion will provide an opportunity for the audience to examine institutional responses to sexual assault at several colleges/universities. This event will serve as a starting point for discussing the experiences of students in the AUC and will create an opportunity for students to propose ways to improve our own institution’s response to sexual assault cases. We will be joined for this discussion by representatives from the Atlanta Police Department, the Grady Rape Crisis Center and Spelman's Title IX Office.
