at UAA and the efforts she and Kristen Speyerer have been involved in.
Prof. Ryan Fortson, J.D., Justice faculty, and Simona Gerdts, Justice major/Legal Studies minor, made a presentation about "NO MORE at UAA" on April 11 to Col. Adam Lange, Deputy Commander, U.S. Army Alaska (USARAK), and other members of the USARAK Sexual Assault Review Board at JBER.

The "NO MORE at UAA" campaign, which began the week of March 17 as a precursor to National Sexual Assault Awareness Month in April, was co-branded with the "NO MORE" national campaign to increase greater awareness and action to end domestic violence and sexual assault.

The "NO MORE at UAA" campaign is part of a degree capstone project with the UAA Center for Community Engagement and Learning (CCEL). The UAA campaign was  initiated and coordinated by Simona Gerdts and Kristen Speyerer, Justice majors/Legal Studies minors, who will be graduating in May 2014.

The "NO MORE at UAA" campaign will continue its works as a student organization called the NO MORE Alliance.
