Congratulations to the Jefferson County Community College CAP winning proposal that will premier at the District 7 Spring Conference, The Bully Culture on March 3, 2012. AAUW’s Holly Kearl will be the Keynote Speaker. The film will be made available as a resource to other branches who want to provide programming on the Crossing the Line report, following the conference.
The 2011–12 Campus Action Project (CAP) grant program focuses on the issues raised by AAUW’s research report, Crossing the Line: Sexual Harassment at School.
This year AAUW granted funds to seven campus-based teams to implement recommendations from the research report in their communities during the spring of 2012.
Jefferson Community College (New York)
In collaboration with local students, the CAP team at Jefferson Community College will develop a 30-minute film to addresses the issue of sexual harassment in grades 7–12. Through interviews with students, educators, and parents, the film will raise awareness of the issue of sexual harassment and provide a platform for discussion on best practices and tools to use to prevent and stop harassment. The film will be premiered as a part of a daylong conference on bully culture coordinated by AAUW of New York’s District 7 to be held at Jefferson Community College on March 3, 2012. Conference attendees will include students, educators, parents, and members of community organizations that serve youth.
