Quincy University Announces Safety Awareness Week

on .

Quincy University’s student affairs department will host a safety awareness week. The safety awareness week will be September 23-27th. The campaign was adopted from a combination of police department programs and other campus safety initiatives. Several safety seminars will be held on campus throughout the week.

In support of safety awareness week the university will host the annual “Take Back the Night,” event on Wednesday the 25th. The event will kick off at 7:30pm in the Hall of Fame room, and will include remarks from keynote speaker Kyla Lacey, also known at The Rising Phoenix poet. “Take Back the Night” is an annual event, observed throughout the United States as well as internationally, that brings community members together to speak out about sexual violence, relationship violence, and other forms of interpersonal violence. Take Back the Night provides an opportunity for community members to proclaim that each individual has the right to live free from violence and for the voices of those who have been affected by violence to be heard.
