Activism within the Halls

I am currently a Resident assistant within housing here on campus and have been for a couple of years now. This has enabled me to have many connections here on campus, the connections that have a great capacity to reach a lot different people. I really want to work within the halls, with the freshmen class that came in, in educating about the underground ideas of violence against women. I became really interested in the "clothes-line" idea that we read about in previous chapters, and would love to expand on that with the help of many resources on campus, but most of all I would love the aid of the new and hopefully educatedly influenced freshmen class, in regards to violence against women.

Good idea! Good to catch folks as early on as you can to engage them in this topic and to engage both men and women--imagine what they might accomplish around this topic by the time they're seniors!
