Owning Your Story: Learning to Write About Sexual Assault & Harassment 4/8

Monday, April 8th, 6:30-8pm, E25-401

Writing about sexual assault and harassment, whether it is for a speech or
your private journal, can be challenging. This event approaches writing as a
tool for healing and a way to discover how the experience(s) have impacted
your life. We will not be sharing explicit details of experiences in this space.
Open to anyone in the MIT community who has experienced sexual assault
or harassment at any point in their life.
