Simona Gerdts and Kristen Speyerer, Justice majors/Legal Studies minors, received their BAs in Justice in May 2014.  The UAA Says NO MORE campaign was part of their degree capstone project with the UAA Center for Community Engagement and Learning (CCEL).

As part of the project, they worked to co-brand the campaign with the "NO MORE" national campaign  — a nationwide effort to increase greater awareness and action to end domestic violence and sexual assault. Their work was highlighted in a recent Anchorage Daily News article by Kathleen McCoy of the UAA Advancement office. See below to read the article:

"Hometown U: Busy seniors launch campaign against domestic violence, sexual assault" by Kathleen McCoy. Anchorage Daily News, 24 May 2014.

The UAA Says NO MORE campaign continues to gain momentum, and has been added to the growing list of organizations, clubs, and nonprofits that are uniting to end domestic violence and sexual assault.  UAA says NO MORE will now be known as the UAA NO MORE Alliance.
