A Cultural Conversation about Sexual Assault in Iowa

Led by UNI Women's and Gender Studies alum Lata D'Mello and other professionals working on research and prevention of sexual assault, this discussion panel will focus on raising awareness about sexual assault through a cultural lens. The conversation will explore what sexual assault and domestic violence justice would look like, especially in immigrant and minority communities, and how college students can help address these issues. This event is sponsored by Women's and Gender Studies.
