The task force is holding a campus-wide open forum to gather input, suggestions, and concerns related to its charge. All students, faculty, and staff are welcome.

Neil Irvin and Patrick McGann of the organization Men Can Stop Rape will discuss the racist history of rape, the challenges to connecting anti-rape and anti-racism work, and the promise of creating a collective commitment to preventing racism and gender-based violence through non-violent communication.
