The Movement is a recognized student organization that focuses on interpersonal violence peer education and advocacy efforts. The Movement peer educators are paid, trained peer educators who facilitate workshops on issues of gender equity and social justice. The organization meets weekly to discuss current events, work on facilitation skills, create workshops and much more.
Some of the workshops available through The Movement include Sexual Violence 101, Bystander Behaviors and Stalking 101. In addition, The Movement plays a role in campus-wide prevention and advocacy programming efforts such as Take Back the Night and Smash the Scale.
Interested in becoming a part of The Movement?
Movement Peer Educators participate in a 6-week, 20-hour training focused on increasing content knowledge, developing facilitation skills and preparing to engage in dialogue centered on interpersonal violence prevention. As an ongoing Movement member, you will be asked to sign up for a designated number of workshops to facilitate throughout the semester, as well as assist with large-scale programming initiatives. The Movement accepts new members twice a year; decisions on all applicants will be made before the start of the fall and spring semesters.
