#MeToo Forum Poster

ALBANY, Ga. – According to RAINN Statistics, every 98 seconds, another person experiences sexual assault.

The Albany State University (ASU) History and Political Science club is joining the conversation by hosting a #MeToo forum, Tuesday, March 13, at 6:30 p.m., in the Billy C. Black Auditorium. The panel discussion will assess the significance and future of the #MeToo movement, and promote awareness of sexual assault.

The #MeToo movement has gained popularity in recent months on social media to help demonstrate the widespread prevalence of sexual assault and harassment. What started as a simple hashtag has become one of the leading conversations of today. As sexual assault victims share their stories, women and men are standing up for the cause world-wide.

Confirmed panelists include:

  • Santee Archer, interim Veterans Affairs grant director, Albany State University                                                             
  • Marcus White, victim advocate at the Marine Corps Logistics Base
  • Mary Martinez, executive director, Lily Pad Center
  • Captain Anita Allen, ASU Police Department
  • Teshaunda Hannor-Walker, Albany therapist in private practice

Cheri Blackmon of the History and Political Science Club will serve as moderator.

Students, faculty, staff, and members of the community are invited to attend.
