The Silent Witness Project is an exhibit in memory of victims of domestic violence. The Women’s Center hosts this exhibit in the Talley Lobby in order to increase awareness and education about the impacts of domestic violence in our community. Each life-size silhouette carries a plaque with the story of a person who was murdered as a result of domestic violence. NCSU’s Silent Witness Project is modeled after the Silent Witness National Initiative whose goal it is to eliminate domestic violence murders in the United States by the year 2020.
The NC State Women’s Center is hosting We Bleed Red, a NC State Initiative who seeks to provide access to menstrual products on campus. Join We Bleed Red to learn more about how eco-friendly and empowering product alternatives for period management, specifically the Diva Cup. We Bleed Red is offering free Diva Cups to students as well as an opportunity to be apart of a NC State documentary. Join us October 15th from 12:30pm – 1:30pm in the Women’s Center lounge to learn more.
Café Con Leche will center our experiences at the borders of our sueños y cuentos (dreams and stories). This event is for every student, staff, and faculty person at NC State who is interested in celebrating the way dreams and stories are used to center the lived experiences of our families, friends, and communities. Cafe con Leche is a celebration of experiential knowledge and the way we find truth at the margins and borderlands of our lives.
Come celebrate the ending of Latinx Heritage month with the Women’s Center, Multicultural Student Affairs, and Lambda Pi Chi Latinas Promoviendo Comunidad Sorority, Inc.
Sign up to share the mic, telling your own dreams, stories, folktales, immigrant stories as well as those which may be centuries old and told down from your families. We encourage all forms of verbal art such as songs, poetry, monologues, passages, and spoken word. While we are centering the Latinidad and the Latinx experience, we encourage all work that celebrates the intersectional, inclusive aspects of multiple identities.

This event is open to students, staff, faculty, and community members.
This is workshop #3 in the Domestic Violence Awareness Month Lunch & Learn series. Today’s workshop will provide an opportunity for students, staff, and faculty to hear from experts about support options for individuals experiencing domestic or dating violence in the military community. Presenters will discuss the ways in which survivors in the military community experience violence, unique barriers they may face in seeking help, and on- and off-campus resources for the military/veterans community.
DEW week focus:
Join the Movement Peer Educators as they provide participants with introductory information regarding healthy relationships. Participants will recognize how power and control impact different intersecting identities across communities and investigate the connection between power and abuse. Through activities, media, and discussion, participants will discuss how social positionality impacts relationships in our culture broadly and here at NCSU. Participants will examine their own relationship to power, will have a greater understanding of healthy and unhealthy relationship behaviors, and will be equipped with resources to both prevent and recover from relationship violence.
