Outreach & Advocacy Project

Survivors come from all backgrounds regardless of class status, race, ethnicity, ability, gender identity, or spiritual, religious, or faith based identities. We know that dating/intimate partner and sexual violence impacts all of us, whether we have experienced harm directly or someone we know has. PCC has a shared commitment to provide support to our peers and to call an end to this violence.

If you have experienced harm resulting from intimate partner/dating violence, sexual violence, harassment, or stalking, or have questions and want to talk to someone, we are here to help.

The Outreach & Advocacy Project collaborates with staff, faculty, and students across PCC to ensure equitable access to student centered support. This includes direct advocacy support, co-advocacy with multiple departments, referrals, training, and outreach events for the PCC community, and the development of college wide protocols to further support students.

October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month (DVAM)

Three main themes exist as the purpose of DVAM: to mourn those who have died because of domestic violence, to celebrate those who have survived, and to connect those who work to end violence. Check out free events below to learn more and become involved with DVAM.
