March 4 2014: BLUEPRINTS FOR CHANGE

SASSL and the Men’s Team from CHR bring you Blueprints for Change, a White Ribbon Campaign presentation on masculinity and the way that it people in society.

This fun, informal, and interactive workshop fosters a safe space for people to share and talk about their experiences while looking at issues such as who defines masculinity and femininity, the pressure on masculine-identified individuals to “act like a man”, and how experiencing violence affects masculine-identified individuals.

 

March 5 2014: SURVIVAL: SASSL’S 6TH ANNUAL HeART SHOW & 18TH ANNIVERSARY!

HeART is SASSL’s 6th annual art show in celebration of International Women’s Day and our 18th anniversary as a non-hierarchical, student-run collective. We operate a 24/7 support line and run outreaches, events and workshops from a feminist, anti-oppressive and survivor-centric framework.

The theme of HeART this year is SURVIVAL, where we honour and support our communities as we continue to resist state-sanctioned structural violence in all its’ manifestations (in the form of white supremacy, patriarchy, capitalism, transphobia, ableism, police brutality, etc.). We seek to prioritize the voices of indigenous women, women of colour and trans people, intentionally taking up space which has long been denied us.

Most sexual assaults are done by someone we know. Whether it’s recent or it happened a long time ago, being at school can bring up issues about sexual assault. Luckily the campus has resources that can help.

University is the perfect place to make friends and build new memories. Just remember: No matter how much you drink, what you’re wearing, or “how far you go” with someone, No still means No!
