California State University, Chico will be participating in the Enough is Enough Campaign to Stem Societal Violence during the week of April 5-9, 2010.
This event is sponsored by NASPA, the Student Affairs Administrators in Higher Education and the leading voice for student affairs administration, policy, and practice. NASPA is represented on 1,400 campuses and is sponsoring the Enough is Enough Campaign in colleges, universities, and high schools across the country. The goal of the campaign is to alleviate violence that takes place on campuses and in college communities.
The events of the campaign will begin on Monday, April 5, with an information fair on the efforts to decrease violence within the community. The fair will be held from ten in the morning until two in the afternoon in Trinity Commons on the CSU, Chico campus.
On Tuesday, April 6, a workshop concerning the relationship between hip-hop music and violence will be held at noon in the Cross-Cultural Leadership Center in Meriam Library 172. In addition to the workshop, everyone is urged to wear black on Tuesday as a symbol of awareness of the damage violence has done to communities.
Three campaign events will take place on Wednesday, April 7. First, CSU, Chico’s Safe Place program will present a Sole Survivors display on the pathway by Glenn Hall from ten in the morning until two in the afternoon. At noon, the ongoing Conversations on Diversity program will hold a session in Bell Memorial Union 210 called “Let’s Play Violence,” which will deal with the association of violence with video games, television, and other entertainment. Finally, a film about violence in schools, “Higher Learning,” will be shown in Plumas Hall 205 at six in the evening.
The last event of the campaign will take place on Thursday, April 8, in the BMU Common Grounds café at six thirty in the evening where a panel of speakers will discuss violence from a law enforcement perspective.
All of the campaign events are free and open to the public.
