Our Voices will be a collaborative, student-devised work, designed to share stories both from survivors of sexual assault and about rape culture on our campus in general. Sexual violence is an epidemic on Harvard’s campus, and the need for meaningful engagement with this issue could not be clearer or more pressing. Our Voices—while privileging the voices of students on this campus—will be presented in collaboration with the Office of Sexual Assault Prevention & Response (OSAPR). Our Voices will be a space for storytelling and for sharing and we hope it will build on the work done at this semester’s Rally for Sexual Assault Survivors. The show will take place at the end of April–Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM)–and it will be the capstone of OSAPR’s SAAM programming.... Read more about Our Voices
