Background: On Thursday, November 7, 2019, Genesee Community College will host a special event on the Batavia Campus featuring a powerful Sexual Assault Survivor Art Installation called “What Were They Wearing?”
The installation showcases multiple outfits re-created from the stories of actual assault survivors to challenge the myth that rape or any act of sexual assault has a correlation to what someone was, or was not, wearing.
Guests of the event will also get to meet with members from a variety of campus clubs, resources and community agencies, enjoy games and activities, and enter for a chance to win a raffle prize.
The event will be open from 12 – 2 p.m. and 5 – 7 p.m. on Thursday, November 7, 2019 to allow as many members of the public and students to attend as possible.
