Anti-violence programs make up Enough is Enough Week, April 7-11
Finding ways to prevent violence in our communities is the driving force behind a weeklong set of events at University of the Pacific.
Enough is Enough, a program sponsored by the National Association of Student Personnel Administrators, or NASPA, is designed to promote peace and reduce violence. The events will be April 7-11. View a complete list of events at Calendar.Pacific.edu>>
"Enough is Enough Week offers a dynamic set of programs to remind people that they can be instrumental in preventing violence," said Steve Jacobson, associate vice president for Student Life and for the past three years the national chairman for Enough is Enough. "For many, attending a symposium or program or seeing the violence prevention artwork can be enough to convince a person that they, too, can help prevent violence in their communities."
The week features a number of events, including Take Back the Night March and a campus conversation, "Inclusive Language."
"The Lisa Project," a powerful multimedia presentation, will be open daily throughout the week. The unique multi-sensory exhibit experience allowing the visitor to hear, see and experience the reality of child abuse. The week ends with a Boys and Men of Color Symposium hosted by Sammy Nunez of Fathers and Family of San Joaquin.
Enough is Enough was started in response to the Virginia Tech shootings and is aimed at combining the resources of colleges and universities, K-12 schools and various community agencies. NASPA is the largest national organization for those who work in student affairs administration.
