Title: Resist Rape Culture - Rally + March
START DATE: Friday March 08
TIME: 12:00 PM - 2:00 PM
Location Details:
Begins at UCSC Quarry Plaza, ends at Clock Tower downtown.
Event Type: Protest
On Friday March 8th, International Women’s Day, we invite the community to a demonstration to resist rape culture in all its forms. The event was organized by F-WORD (Feminists Working on Real Democracy), a collective of gender non-conforming and female identified people that recently formed in Santa Cruz.

This is an unrelenting movement to engage our community in ending the acceptance of rape culture, through means of education, activism, and creative presence. Our intention is to create a safe space in which we critically analyze how rape occurs not as isolated incidents, but rather as part of a culture that normalizes sexual and gendered violence.

WHAT: Rally and March to Resist Rape Culture
WHEN: Friday, March 8th, 2013
WHERE: 12 noon @ Quarry Plaza, UCSC
1:30 @ the Clocktower, Downtown

Oh, check out #OpThunderbird, hopefully coming to a town, or campus, near you!

Universities routinely try to coverup rapes on their campuses. I doubt that UCSC is any different.
