UMBC’s Relationship Violence Awareness Month
Creating Healthy Intimacy: 31 Days of Awareness
For this year’s Relationship Violence Awareness Month at UMBC, we’re honoring the the experiences and stories of survivors of interpersonal violence through signature events like the Clothesline Project but also focusing on how to create healthy relationships. After all, how can we work to reduce abusive relationships if we’re not having conversations about what healthy relationships are?
This October, the Women’s Center and University Health Services invite you to join one or more of our many events in recognition of Relationship Violence Awareness Month.
“Abuse is not a slap, a punch, or a curse. Abuse is a campaign. A vigorous, concerted effort to accomplish a purpose.”
UMBC seeks to improve overall UMBC Community health by encouraging pro-social relationship behaviors and lifestyle changes that can positively impact our community. We are working to build a comprehensive campus-wide atmosphere of awareness and support for the prevention of intimate partner violence. UMBC wants to prevent intimate partner violence so that all UMBC students can be successful in their educational pursuits and as members of society at large—as parents, spouses, partners, researchers, co-workers, family members and leaders.
We do this by providing information, resources and tools that the UMBC community can use to learn more and to become an active member in the awareness and prevention efforts to end relationship violence.
