Anti Sexual Assault Advocate to speak at Sheridan
Julie Lalonde, the Governor General Award-winning advocate and public educator, will visit Sheridan on Wednesday, October 14 to present a free lecture to students and employees. The “Draw the Line” campaign which Ms. Lalonde represents, works to challenge myths about sexual violence, educate audiences about consent and equip bystanders to intervene safely and effectively to help prevent sexual violence.
Ms. Lalonde will be speaking at Sheridan’s Hazel McCallion Campus in Mississauga from 11:00 am to 12:30 pm in Room A145. She will be available for media interviews from 12:30 to 1:00 pm.
The talk is being co-presented by the Sheridan Student Union and Sheridan’s Taskforce for the Prevention of Sexual Assault and Sexual Violence. The event is also taking place under the umbrella of a new awareness campaign at Sheridan called ‘Dare to Care’. The name Dare to Care was selected to challenge members of the Sheridan community to speak up when they see or hear something concerning, and to lend a hand to support students or colleagues who may require assistance.
The Hazel McCallion Campus is located at 4180 Duke of York Boulevard in Mississauga. For more information, contact:
