The program was sponsored by the UAA Justice Center and Alpha Phi Sigma, Omega Xi chapter, national criminal justice honor society.
Senior Justice majors/Legal Studies minors Simona Gerdts and Kristen Speyerer planned and coordinated this event as part of their capstone project through the UAA Center for Community Engagement & Learning (CCEL). The students made contact with the "NO MORE" national campaign which has the goal of increasing greater awareness and action to end domestic violence and sexual assault. Simona and Kristen also connected with local media to increase awareness of the program and these issues on campus and to encourage the UAA community to engage in prevention efforts.
"NO MORE" national campaign Like us on the UAA Says No More Facebook page. The hope is to make the "No More" campaign an annual event at UAA.
