Turn off the Violence Week Puts Focus on Campus Sex Assault, Safety

Across the country, one in five college women is a victim of sexual assault, and sexual assault is the number-one violent crime on college campuses. In October, George Mason University is stepping up its ongoing initiatives addressing interpersonal violence with its annual Turn off the Violence Week events.

President Ángel Cabrera and the Division of University Life’s Leadership Education and Development Office will host the latest Freedom and Learning Forum, welcoming Rosemary Trible to a “fireside chat” from 3:30 to 5 p.m. on Oct. 7 in the Hub ballroom on the Fairfax Campus.

Trible is a rape survivor, the founder of the global nonprofit Fear 2 Freedom, and the wife of Christopher Newport University president and former U.S. Sen. Paul Trible Jr.

George Mason students, faculty, staff and the public are invited to attend, as Trible shares her healing journey and takes questions from Cabrera and the audience. Registration is recommended.
