  • Event Date Friday, April 18th from 10:00 am to 11:55 pm
    Each year two weeks before the Annual Rock Against Rape event, the Sexual Assault Awareness Flag Display goes up. The display represents 1 in 3 women, and 1 in 7 men have experienced some form of unwanted sexual contact since becoming a CWU student. This display is a powerful representation of sexual assault on all college campuses and the emphases on the need for an end. Volunteers are needed to set up the flags, and to take down the flags upon the completion of the program.
