Becca Brown, the Party.0 leader at our St.Norbert chapter, was invited to speak about Party.0 at the Title IX Conference at Concordia University. She focused on how her sober parties create a positive environment to help reduce sexual assault on campus.
If you’re wondering, “What is Title IX?” Title 9 is a federal law that prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in any educational program or activity that receives federal funding. Most of the advocacy work around Title Nine is focused on eliminating rape on college campus. Rape is prominent on universities and colleges across the nation and it’s reported that 20% of women will be sexually assaulted during their 4 years at a university.
Being invited to speak at a conference like this shows that Party.0 is a valuable asset in the fight against rape and rape culture that exists today. We are proud to partner with schools, universities and college campuses to improve the climate so all students can feel safe.
Thank you to Concordia University for inviting us, and for Becca Brown, for being the strong advocate for equal rights that she is.
